Description

Multiple integer overflow flaws which could lead to heap-based buffer overflows, as well as multiple insufficient input validation flaws, were found in LittleCMS. An attacker could use these flaws to create a specially crafted image file which could cause an application using LittleCMS to crash, or, possibly, execute arbitrary code when opened by a victim. (CVE-2009-0723, CVE-2009-0733)

A memory leak flaw was found in LittleCMS. An application using LittleCMS could use excessive amount of memory, and possibly crash after using all available memory, if used to open specially crafted images. (CVE-2009-0581)

All running applications using the lcms library must be restarted for the update to take effect.
