Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200409-07 (xv: Buffer overflows in image handling)

Multiple buffer overflow and integer handling vulnerabilities have been     discovered in xv's image processing code. These vulnerabilities have been     found in the xvbmp.c, xviris.c, xvpcx.c and xvpm.c source files.

Impact :

An attacker might be able to embed malicious code into an image, which     would lead to the execution of arbitrary code under the privileges of the     user viewing the image.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
