Multiple boundary errors in DevIL may allow for the execution of arbitrary code.
|Package||media-libs/devil on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 1.7.7|
|Unaffected versions||>= 1.7.7|
Developer's Image Library (DevIL) is a cross-platform image library.
Stefan Cornelius (Secunia Research) discovered two boundary errors within the iGetHdrHeader() function in src-IL/src/il_hdr.c.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted Radiance RGBE file, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All DevIL users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/devil-1.7.7"
