Title: Dillo: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 200908-10)
Date: August 18, 2009
An integer overflow in the PNG handling of Dillo might result in the remote
execution of arbitrary code.
Dillo is a graphical web browser known for its speed and small
Vulnerable: < 2.1.1
Unaffected: >= 2.1.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Tilei Wang reported an integer overflow in the Png_datainfo_callback()
function, possibly leading to a heap-based buffer overflow.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open an HTML document
containing a specially crafted, large PNG image, possibly resulting in
the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Dillo users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/dillo-2.1.1"
