<title>LittleCMS: Denial of Service</title>
<synopsis>Multiple buffer overflow flaws and a parser error in LittleCMS
could cause Denial of Service.

<p>LittleCMS, or short lcms, is a color management system for working with
ICC profiles. It is used by many applications including GIMP and Firefox.
<p>Multiple stack-based buffer overflows and a profile parser error have
been found in LittleCMS.
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user or automated system to open a
specially crafted file containing a malicious ICC profile, possibly
resulting in a Denial of Service condition.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All LittleCMS users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=media-libs/lcms-2.6-r1"
<p>Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying these packages.
<p>NOTE: Gentoo has discontinued support for the LittleCMS 1.9 branch. </p>
