Description

The XPM library which is part of the XFree86/XOrg project is used by several GUI applications to process XPM image files.

A source code review of the XPM library, done by Thomas Biege of the SuSE Security-Team revealed several different kinds of bugs. These bugs include integer overflows, out-of-bounds memory access, shell command execution, path traversal, and endless loops.

These bugs can be exploited by remote and/or local attackers to gain access to the system or to escalate their local privileges, by using a specially crafted xpm image.

Update :

The previous libxpm4 update had a linking error that resulted in a missing s_popen symbol error running applications dependent on the library. In addition, the file path checking in the security updates prevented some applications, like gimp-2.0 from being able to save xpm format images.

Updated packages are patched to correct all these issues.
