Bug Fix Advisory giflib bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2011:0398-2
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-07-21
Last updated on: 2011-07-21
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated giflib packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

The giflib packages contain a shared library of functions for loading and saving
GIF image files. This library is API and ABI compatible with libungif, the
library that supported uncompressed GIF image files while the Unisys LZW patent
was in effect.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, an attempt to use the giftext utility on a GIF file that
does not store a global color map caused it to terminate unexpectedly with a
segmentation fault. This update applies an upstream patch that resolves this
issue, and giftext no longer crashes. (BZ#249555)

All users of giflib are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red
Hat Network to apply this update are available at
