|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: Blender: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200805-12)
Date: May 12, 2008
Multiple vulnerabilities in Blender might result in the remote execution of arbitrary code.
Blender is a 3D creation, animation and publishing program.
Vulnerable: < 2.43-r2
Unaffected: >= 2.43-r2
Architectures: All supported architectures
Stefan Cornelius (Secunia Research) reported a boundary error within the imb_loadhdr() function in in the file source/blender/imbuf/intern/radiance_hdr.c when processing RGBE images (CVE-2008-1102). Multiple vulnerabilities involving insecure usage of temporary files have also been reported (CVE-2008-1103).
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted file (.hdr or .blend), possibly resulting in the remote execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Blender users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/blender-2.43-r2"
