Netpbm GIFtoPNM Utility Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Netpbm is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to perform adequate boundary checks on user-supplied input.

The precise implications of this issue are currently unavailable, but given the nature of the issue, a successfully exploit may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application. Failed exploit attempts will likely cause denial-of-service conditions.

Versions prior to Netpbm 10.27 are vulnerable.
