Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: March 06, 2009
Bug(s): #255217
ID: 200903-04

Synopsis

Multiple boundary errors in DevIL may allow for the execution of arbitrary code.

Background

Developer's Image Library (DevIL) is a cross-platform image library.

Affected Packages

Package: media-libs/devil
Vulnerable: < 1.7.7
Unaffected: >= 1.7.7
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Stefan Cornelius (Secunia Research) discovered two boundary errors within the iGetHdrHeader() function in src-IL/src/il_hdr.c.

Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted Radiance RGBE file, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All DevIL users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/devil-1.7.7"
