Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA337] DSA-337-1 gtksee

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-337-1 gtksee

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Viliam Holub discovered a bug in gtksee whereby, when loading PNG
images of certain color depths, gtksee would overflow a heap-allocated
buffer. This vulnerability could be exploited by a possible hacker using a
carefully constructed PNG image to execute arbitrary code when the
victim loads the file in gtksee.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.5.0-6.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.
Refer to Debian bug #76346.
We recommend that you update your gtksee package.
