Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-267 (gtk2).

It is possible that a specially crafted BMP image could cause a denial
of service attack in applications linked against GTK+.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2005-0891 to this issue.
