Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: KDE kimgio: PCX handling buffer overflow (GLSA 200504-22)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: April 22, 2005
Bug(s): #88862
ID: 200504-22

Synopsis


KDE fails to properly validate input when handling PCX images, potentially
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.


Background


KDE is a feature-rich graphical desktop environment for Linux and
Unix-like Operating Systems. kimgio is the KDE image handler provided
by kdelibs.


Affected Packages

Package: kde-base/kdelibs
Vulnerable: < 3.3.2-r8
Unaffected: >= 3.2.3-r9 < 3.2.4
Unaffected: >= 3.3.2-r8
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


kimgio fails to properly validate input when handling PCX files.


Impact


By enticing a user to load a specially-crafted PCX image in a KDE
application, an attacker could execute arbitrary code.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All kdelibs users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose kde-base/kdelibs
