Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Libgdiplus: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 201401-01)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: January 05, 2014
Bug(s): #334101
ID: 201401-01

Synopsis

Multiple integer overflow vulnerabilities in Libgdiplus may allow
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.


Background

Libgdiplus is the Mono library that provide a GDI+ comptible API on
non-Windows operating systems.


Affected Packages

Package: dev-dotnet/libgdiplus
Vulnerable: < 2.6.7-r1
Unaffected: >= 2.6.7-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

An integer overflow flaw has been discovered in Libgdiplus.

Impact

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially-crafted
TIFF/JPEG/BMP file, potentially resulting in arbitrary code execution.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Libgdiplus users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-dotnet/libgdiplus-2.6.7-r1"
   
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since September 12, 2010. It is likely that your system is
already no longer affected by this issue.
