Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 2 2004-289: gtk2

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gtk2 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2004-289 (gtk2).

GTK+ is a multi-platform toolkit for creating graphical user
interfaces. Offering a complete set of widgets, GTK+ is suitable for
projects ranging from small one-off tools to complete application
suites.

Update Information:

During testing of a previously fixed flaw in Qt (CVE-2004-0691), a flaw
was discovered in the BMP image processor of gtk2. A possible hacker could create
a carefully crafted BMP file which would cause an application to enter an
infinite loop and not respond to user input when the file was opened by
a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the name CVE-2004-0753 to this issue.

During a security audit Chris Evans discovered a stack and a heap
overflow in the XPM image decoder. A possible hacker could create a carefully crafted
XPM file which could cause an application linked with gtk2 to crash or
possibly execute arbitrary code when the file was opened by a victim.
(CVE-2004-0782, CVE-2004-0783)

Chris Evans also discovered an integer overflow in the ICO image
decoder. A possible hacker could create a carefully crafted ICO file which could cause
an application linked with gtk2 to crash when the file was opened by a
victim. (CVE-2004-0788)
