'imlib2' Library 'load()' Function Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

The 'imlib2' library is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because the software fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied data.

An attacker can exploit this issue to execute arbitrary machine code in the context of applications using the vulnerable library. Failed exploit attempts will likely cause denial-of-service conditions.

This issue affects imlib2 1.4.2; other versions may also be affected.
