Description Josh Bressers 2004-08-25 14:36:02 EDT
A heap overflow issue has been discovered in the imlib BMP decoder. 
This issue deals with overflowing the color palette.

It may be possible for this overflow to allow an attacker to execute
malicious code.

The demo image is attachment 102533 [details].

This issue is also documented in the gnome BTS

Fedora Core is handled by bug 130908

This issue also affects RHEL2.1

Current proposed patch

This is the current proposed patch.  It differs from the gnome patch since it
removed some unneeded checks.

I have built

imlib-1.9.13-4.2 for RHEL 2.1
imlib-1.9.13-13.3 for RHEL 3
imlib-1.9.13-15.fc1 for FC1
imlib-1.9.13-19 for FC2
imlib-1.9.13-21 for FC3

hmm, I really messed up release numbering here...
