Libgdiplus: Arbitrary code execution
Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
||GLSA 201401-01 / libgdiplus
||January 05, 2014
||January 05, 2014: 1
All supported architectures
Multiple integer overflow vulnerabilities in Libgdiplus may allow
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.
Libgdiplus is the Mono library that provide a GDI+ comptible API on
non-Windows operating systems.
An integer overflow flaw has been discovered in Libgdiplus.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially-crafted
TIFF/JPEG/BMP file, potentially resulting in arbitrary code execution.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Libgdiplus users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code Listing 3.1: Resolution
# 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.
