rPath Security Advisory: 2007-0117-1
Products: rPath Linux 1
Exposure Level Classification:
Indirect User Deterministic Denial of Service
Previous versions of the gd and php packages are vulnerable to a Denial
of Service attack in which an attacker can use a truncated PNG image to
cause unbounded CPU consumption. The libgd library is not exposed via
any privileged or remote interfaces within rPath Linux per se, but it is
exposed by some web applications, such as php (which provides its own
internal version of libgd).
