    ________________________________________________________________________

    Package name: WindowMaker
    Advisory ID: MDKSA-2002:085
    Date: December 2nd, 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.
