Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: OpenMotif: Multiple vulnerabilities in libXpm (GLSA 200502-07)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: February 07, 2005
Updated: February 25, 2005
Bug(s): #78111
ID: 200502-07

Synopsis


Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in libXpm, which is included
in OpenMotif, that can potentially lead to remote code execution.


Background


OpenMotif provides a free version of the Motif toolkit for open source
applications.


Affected Packages

Package: x11-libs/openmotif
Vulnerable: < 2.2.3-r1
Unaffected: >= 2.2.3-r1
Unaffected: >= 2.1.30-r7 < 2.1.31
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Multiple vulnerabilities, such as buffer overflows, out of bounds
memory access or directory traversals, have been discovered in libXpm
that is shipped as a part of the X Window System (see GLSA 200409-34
and 200411-28). OpenMotif, an application that includes this library,
suffers from the same issues.


Impact


A carefully-crafted XPM file could crash applications making use of the
OpenMotif toolkit, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running the application.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All OpenMotif users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose x11-libs/openmotif

Note: You should run 'revdep-rebuild' to ensure that all applications
linked to OpenMotif are properly rebuilt.
