Comment 19 Jan Lieskovsky 2009-03-24 13:54:51 EDT
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2009-0723 to
this vulnerability:

Multiple integer overflows in LittleCMS (aka lcms or liblcms) before
1.18beta2, as used in Firefox 3.1beta, OpenJDK, and GIMP, allow
context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted
image file that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow. NOTE: some of
these details are obtained from third party information.
