Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several vulnerabilities have been found in gtk+2.0, the Gtk+ GdkPixBuf
XPM image rendering library. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project identifies the following problems:

images that permits a possible hacker to cause a denial of service via a
specially crafted XPM file.
Ludwig Nussel discovered an integer overflow in the way XPM images
are processed that could lead to the execution of arbitrary code
or crash the application via a specially crafted XPM file.
"infamous41md" discovered an integer overflow in the XPM processing
routine that can be used to execute arbitrary code via a traditional heap
overflow.
The following matrix explains which versions fix these problems:
We recommend that you upgrade your gtk+2.0 packages.
