Synopsis
=======
Multiple boundary errors in DevIL may allow for the execution of
arbitrary code.

Background
=========
Developer's Image Library (DevIL) is a cross-platform image library.

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package           /  Vulnerable  /                     Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  media-libs/devil       < 1.7.7                           >= 1.7.7

Description
==========
Stefan Cornelius (Secunia Research) discovered two boundary errors
within the iGetHdrHeader() function in src-IL/src/il_hdr.c.

Impact
=====
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted
Radiance RGBE file, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary
code.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All DevIL users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/devil-1.7.7"
