<p>Netpbm is a toolkit for manipulation of graphic images, including
conversion of images between a variety of different formats.
<p>A stack-based buffer overflow exists in converter/ppm/xpmtoppm.c in
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted XMP
file using Netpbm, 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>All Netpbm users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=media-libs/netpbm-10.49.00"
<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.
