--------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedora Update Notification FEDORA-2004-301 2004-09-09 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Product : Fedora Core 2 Name : imlib Version : 1.9.13 Release : 19 Summary : An image loading and rendering library for X11R6. Description : Imlib is a display depth independent image loading and rendering library. Imlib is designed to simplify and speed up the process of loading images and obtaining X Window System drawables. Imlib provides many simple manipulation routines which can be used for common operations. Install imlib if you need an image loading and rendering library for X11R6, or if you are installing GNOME. You may also want to install the imlib-cfgeditor package, which will help you configure Imlib. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Update Information: Several heap overflow vulnerabilities have been found in the imlib BMP image handler. An attacker could create a carefully crafted BMP file in such a way that it would cause an application linked with imlib to execute arbitrary code when the file was opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has assigned the name CAN-2004-0817 to this issue. Users of imlib should update to this updated package which contains backported patches and is not vulnerable to these issues. --------------------------------------------------------------------- * Thu Sep 09 2004 Matthias Clasen <> - security fixes --------------------------------------------------------------------- This update can be downloaded from: c6ed83101974d8283a4013a80e356c08 SRPMS/imlib-1.9.13-19.src.rpm 9f6952bd21d1157b4c10dde7f87b8a3d x86_64/imlib-1.9.13-19.x86_64.rpm e70a8c0dec245aea672da1f1608e1e33 x86_64/imlib-devel-1.9.13-19.x86_64.rpm 64aa17fe9a0ea4efa9d48020212274c9 x86_64/imlib-cfgeditor-1.9.13-19.x86_64.rpm 48ef8b28ae79d1c7c82974e7f6b77e86 x86_64/debug/imlib-debuginfo-1.9.13-19.x86_64.rpm d9d04d9df1981e22e45853789a99db19 i386/imlib-1.9.13-19.i386.rpm 9589803f0299131a91bf78ea62cf68c3 i386/imlib-devel-1.9.13-19.i386.rpm b602fcb2d9d57b87abd57792b17c84c1 i386/imlib-cfgeditor-1.9.13-19.i386.rpm fe0ab8902a4f20532cea1f1d988add08 i386/debug/imlib-debuginfo-1.9.13-19.i386.rpm This update can also be installed with the Update Agent; you can launch the Update Agent with the 'up2date' command. --------------------------------------------------------------------- -- fedora-announce-list mailing list
