A format string vulnerability has been found in libpano13, potentially resulting in arbitrary code execution.
|Package||media-libs/libpano13 on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 2.9.20|
|Unaffected versions||>= 2.9.20|
libpano13 is Helmut Derschâ€™s panorama toolbox library.
A format string issue exists within panoFileOutputNamesCreate() where unvalidated input is passed directly into the formatter.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted file using libpano13, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All libpano13 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/libpano13-2.9.20"
