<p>
A anonymous researcher discovered that an error in the handling of a
GIF image with a zero width field block leads to a memory corruption
flaw.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
An attacker could entice a user to run a specially crafted Java applet
or application that would load a crafted GIF image, which could result
in escalation of privileges and unauthorized access to system
resources.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
