Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200503-05 (xli, xloadimage: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Tavis Ormandy of the Gentoo Linux Security Audit Team has reported that     xli and xloadimage contain a flaw in the handling of compressed images,     where shell meta-characters are not adequately escaped. Rob Holland of     the Gentoo Linux Security Audit Team has reported that an xloadimage     vulnerability in the handling of Faces Project images discovered by     zen-parse in 2001 remained unpatched in xli. Additionally, it has been     reported that insufficient validation of image properties in xli could     potentially result in buffer management errors.

Impact :

Successful exploitation would permit a remote attacker to execute     arbitrary shell commands, or arbitrary code with the privileges of the     xloadimage or xli user.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
