Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 2 2005-265: gdk-pixbuf

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gdk-pixbuf package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-265 (gdk-pixbuf).

The gdk-pixbuf package contains an image loading library used with the
GNOME GUI desktop environment. The GdkPixBuf library provides image
loading facilities, the rendering of a GdkPixBuf into various formats
(drawables or GdkRGB buffers), and a cache interface.

Update Information:

David Costanzo found a bug in the way gdk-pixbuf processes BMP images.
It is possible that a specially crafted BMP image could cause a denial
of service attack in applications linked against gdk-pixbuf.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2005-0891 to this issue.
