<description>
<p>Multiple integer overflows in GEGL may cause a heap-based buffer
overflow.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted PPM
image using an application linked against GEGL, possibly resulting in
execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a
Denial of Service condition.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>All gegl users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=media-libs/gegl-0.2.0-r2"
</code>
<p>Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
