RedHat: Moderate: lcms security update
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
RedHat Linux Updated lcms packages that resolve several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. Multiple insufficient input validation flaws were discovered in LittleCMS. An attacker could use these flaws to create a specially-crafted image file which could cause an application using LittleCMS to crash, or, possibly, execute arbitrary code when opened.

Users of lcms should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues. All running applications using
