Description Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2008-11-21 21:05:02 UTC
CVE-2008-5187 (
  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 obtained
  solely from third party information.

Patch has been applied upstream:
svn diff -c 37744
Comment 2 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2008-11-27 19:38:30 UTC
thanks for the easy-to-use link ... ive applied the patch to 1.4.2-r1

since this is the only change in 1.4.2 (which is current stable), moving 1.4.2-r1 to stable should be fairly trivial ...
Comment 3 Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2008-11-30 17:17:36 UTC
Arches, please test and mark stable:

ppc64 done
Comment 8 Tobias Heinlein (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-12-07 11:52:36 UTC
amd64 stable, although I failed and used cvs commit instead of repoman. Seems to be fixed now.
