MDKSA-2002:085 - Updated WindowMaker packages fix buffer overflow vulnerability

by Nikola Strahija on December 3rd, 2002 Affected versions: 7.2, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 9.0


Problem Description:

Al Viro discovered a vulnerability in the WindowMaker window manager.
A function used to load images, for example when configuring a new
background image or previewing themes, contains a buffer overflow.
The function calculates the amount of memory necessary to load the
image by doing some multiplication but does not check the results of
this multiplication, which may not fit into the destination variable,
resulting in a buffer overflow when the image is loaded.
