Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA464] DSA-464-1 gdk-pixbuf

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-464-1 gdk-pixbuf

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Thomas Kristensen discovered a vulnerability in gdk-pixbuf (binary
package libgdk-pixbuf2), the GdkPixBuf image library for Gtk, that can
cause the surrounding application to crash. To exploit this problem,
a remote attacker could send a carefully-crafted BMP file via mail,
which would cause e.g. Evolution to crash but is probably not limited
to Evolution.
For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.17.0-2woody1.
For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.22.0-3.
We recommend that you upgrade your libgdk-pixbuf2 package.
