Rule Category

FILE-IMAGE -- Snort detected suspicious traffic targeting vulnerabilities found inside images files, regardless of delivery method, targeted software, or image type. (Examples include: jpg, png, gif, bmp). These rules search for malformed images used to exploit system. Attackers alter image attributes, often to include shell code, so they are susceptible to vulnerabilities when they are parsed and send commands instead of loading the image.

Alert Message

FILE-IMAGE Mozilla GIF single packet heap overflow - ANIMEXTS1.0

Rule Explanation

Heap-based buffer overflow in GIF2.cpp in Firefox before 1.0.2, Mozilla before to 1.7.6, and Thunderbird before 1.0.2, and possibly other applications that use the same library, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a GIF image with a crafted Netscape extension 2 block and buffer size.
