<title>SWFTools: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code</title>
<synopsis>A heap-based buffer overflow in SWFTools could result in the
execution of arbitrary code.

<p>SWFTools is a collection of SWF manipulation and generation utilities
written by Rainer Böhme and Matthias Kramm.
<p>Integer overflow errors in the "getPNG()" function in png.c and the
"jpeg_load()" function in jpeg.c could cause a heap-based buffer
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PNG or
JPEG file, possibly resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process, or a Denial of Service condition.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>Gentoo discontinued support for SWFTools. We recommend that users
unmerge swftools:
# emerge --unmerge "media-gfx/swftools"
<p>NOTE: Users could upgrade to "&gt;=media-gfx/swftools-0.9.1", however
these packages are not currently stable.
