gtksee - buffer overflow



Debian Security Advisory

DSA-337-1 gtksee -- buffer overflow

Date Reported:
29 Jun 2003
Affected Packages:
gtksee
Vulnerable:
Yes
Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CAN-2003-0444.
More information:

Viliam Holub discovered a bug in gtksee whereby, when loading PNG images of certain color depths, gtksee would overflow a heap-allocated buffer. This vulnerability could be exploited by an attacker using a carefully constructed PNG image to execute arbitrary code when the victim loads the file in gtksee.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 0.5.0-6.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon. Refer to Debian bug #76346.

We recommend that you update your gtksee package.

Fixed in:

Debian GNU/Linux 3.0 (woody)
