Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Fedora Multiple integer overflows were found in the International Color Consortium Format Library (icclib). An attacker could use this flaw to potentially execute arbitrary code by requesting to translate a specially- crafted image file created on one device into another's device native color space via a device file.

Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-3011
2009-03-25 15:23:17
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : argyllcms
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 1.0.3
Release     : 3.fc10
URL         : http://www.argyllcms.com/
Summary     : ICC compatible color management system
Description :
The Argyll color management system supports accurate ICC profile creation for
scanners, CMYK printers, film recorders and calibration and profiling of
displays.

Spectral sample data is supported, allowing a selection of illuminants observer
types, and paper fluorescent whitener additive compensation. Profiles can also
incorporate source specific gamut mappings for perceptual and saturation
intents. Gamut mapping and profile linking uses the CIECAM02 appearance model,
a unique gamut mapping algorithm, and a wide selection of rendering intents. It
also includes code for the fastest portable 8 bit raster color conversion
engine available anywhere, as well as support for fast, fully accurate 16 bit
conversion. Device color gamuts can also be viewed and compared using a VRML
viewer.
