Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.52089
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:332
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2005:332.

The xloadimage utility displays images in an X Window System window,
loads images into the root window, or writes images into a file.
Xloadimage supports many image types (including GIF, TIFF, JPEG, XPM,
and XBM).

A flaw was discovered in xloadimage where filenames were not properly
quoted when calling the gunzip command. An attacker could create a file
with a carefully crafted filename so that it would execute arbitrary
commands if opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0638 to
this issue.

Another bug in xloadimage would cause it to crash if called with certain
invalid TIFF, PNM, PBM, or PPM file names.

All users of xloadimage should upgrade to this erratum package which
contains backported patches to correct these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
