Description


Ariel Berkman has reported a vulnerability in xloadimage, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.

The vulnerability is caused due to a boundary error in handling the title of a NIFF image when performing zoom, reduce, or rotate functions. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow and may allow arbitrary code execution via a malicious NIFF image with an overly long title.

The vulnerability has been reported in version 4.1. Other versions may also be affected.


Solution:
Restrict use to only trusted NIFF images.
