    Synopsis
    ========

    zgv contains multiple buffer overflows that can potentially lead to the
    execution of arbitrary code.

    Background
    ==========

    zgv is a console image viewer based on svgalib.

    Affected packages
    =================

        -------------------------------------------------------------------
         Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
        -------------------------------------------------------------------
      1 media-gfx/zgv < 5.8 >= 5.8

    Description
    ===========

    Multiple arithmetic overflows have been detected in the image
    processing code of zgv.

    Impact
    ======

    An attacker could entice a user to open a specially-crafted image file,
    potentially resulting in execution of arbitrary code with the rights of
    the user running zgv.

    Workaround
    ==========

    There is no known workaround at this time.

    Resolution
    ==========

    All zgv users should upgrade to the latest version:

        # emerge --sync
        # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/zgv-5.8"
