Title: Xfig: User-assisted execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 201412-14)
Date: December 13, 2014
Two vulnerabilities have been found in Xfig, possibly resulting in
execution of arbitrary code or Denial of Service.
Xfig is an interactive drawing tool.
Vulnerable: < 3.2.5c
Unaffected: >= 3.2.5c
Architectures: All supported architectures
A stack-based buffer overflow and a stack consumption vulnerability have
been found in Xfig.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially-crafted file,
potentially resulting in arbitrary code execution or a Denial of Service
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Xfig users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/xfig-3.2.5c"
