Description Josh Bressers 2007-01-26 17:44:01 UTC
Kees Cook from Ubuntu reported a "off-the-end-of-string increment", which could
theoretically lead ot a buffer overflow.

This flaw would only be exploitable if a JIS-encoded font is used when
processing a special malicious string.

The issue here is that the NULL terminator is incremented, which could lead to
unknown results during the processing of the malicious string.

Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2007-01-26 17:44:55 UTC
This flaw does not affect gd as shipped in RHEL2.1 or RHEL3.

Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2007-01-26 17:48:16 UTC
This flaw also affects RHEL5.  Once we can assign bugs to that version, I'll
move this from RHEL4.
