GD: Multiple vulnerabilities — GLSA 200708-05

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GD, allowing for the execution of arbitrary code.

Affected Packages

media-libs/gd on all architectures
Affected versions < 2.0.35
Unaffected versions >= 2.0.35

Background

GD is a graphic library for fast image creation.

Description

Xavier Roche discovered an infinite loop in the gdPngReadData() function when processing a truncated PNG file (CVE-2007-2756). An integer overflow has been discovered in the gdImageCreateTrueColor() function (CVE-2007-3472). An error has been discovered in the function gdImageCreateXbm() function (CVE-2007-3473). Unspecified vulnerabilities have been discovered in the GIF reader (CVE-2007-3474). An error has been discovered when processing a GIF image that has no global color map (CVE-2007-3475). An array index error has been discovered in the file gd_gif_in.c when processing images with an invalid color index (CVE-2007-3476). An error has been discovered in the imagearc() and imagefilledarc() functions when processing overly large angle values (CVE-2007-3477). A race condition has been discovered in the gdImageStringFTEx() function (CVE-2007-3478).

Impact

A remote attacker could exploit one of these vulnerabilities to cause a Denial of Service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running GD.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All GD users should upgrade to the latest version:

 # emerge --sync
 # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/gd-2.0.35"
