Description Josh Bressers 2008-11-21 20:55:58 UTC
The load function in the XPM loader for imlib2 1.4.2, and possibly other
versions, allows attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and
possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted XPM file that triggers a
"pointer arithmetic error" and a heap-based buffer overflow, a different
vulnerability than CVE-2008-2426.

NOTE: the provenance of this information is unknown; the details are
