Multiple buffer overflow flaws and a parser error in LittleCMS could cause Denial of Service.
|Package||media-libs/lcms on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 2.6-r1|
|Unaffected versions||>= 2.6-r1|
LittleCMS, or short lcms, is a color management system for working with ICC profiles. It is used by many applications including GIMP and Firefox.
Multiple stack-based buffer overflows and a profile parser error have been found in LittleCMS.
A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to open a specially crafted file containing a malicious ICC profile, possibly resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All LittleCMS users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/lcms-2.6-r1"
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying these packages.
NOTE: Gentoo has discontinued support for the LittleCMS 1.9 branch.
