		Caldera International, Inc.  Security Advisory

Subject:		Linux: imlib processes untrusted images
Advisory number: 	CSSA-2002-019.0
Issue date: 		2002 April 29
Cross reference:
______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

	Imlib versions prior to 1.9.13 would fall back to loading images
	via the NetPBM package. NetPBM has various problems itself
	that make it unsuitable for loading untrusted images. This
	may allow attackers to construct images that, when loaded by
	a viewer using Imlib, could cause crashes or potentially, the
	execution of arbitrary code.

	In addition, this version (1.9.14) also includes some further
	fixes from the imlib team.


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

	System				Package
	----------------------------------------------------------------------

	OpenLinux 3.1.1 Server		prior to imlib-1.9.14-1.i386.rpm
					prior to imlib-devel-1.9.14-1.i386.rpm
