Title: KDE kimgio: PCX handling buffer overflow (GLSA 200504-22)
Date: April 22, 2005
KDE fails to properly validate input when handling PCX images, potentially
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
KDE is a feature-rich graphical desktop environment for Linux and
Unix-like Operating Systems. kimgio is the KDE image handler provided
Vulnerable: < 3.3.2-r8
Unaffected: >= 3.2.3-r9 < 3.2.4
Unaffected: >= 3.3.2-r8
Architectures: All supported architectures
kimgio fails to properly validate input when handling PCX files.
By enticing a user to load a specially-crafted PCX image in a KDE
application, an attacker could execute arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All kdelibs users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose kde-base/kdelibs
