Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200904-19 (LittleCMS: Multiple vulnerabilities)

RedHat reported a NULL pointer dereference flaw while processing
monochrome ICC profiles (CVE-2009-0793).
Chris Evans of Google discovered the following vulnerabilities:
LittleCMS contains severe memory leaks (CVE-2009-0581).
LittleCMS is prone to multiple integer overflows, leading to a
heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2009-0723).
The
ReadSetOfCurves() function is vulnerable to stack-based buffer
overflows when called from code paths without a bounds check on channel
counts (CVE-2009-0733).

Impact :

A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to open a
specially crafted file containing a malicious ICC profile, possibly
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running the application or memory exhaustion, leading to a Denial
of Service condition.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
