Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 2 2005-267: 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-2005-267 (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:
David Costanzo found a bug in the way GTK+ processes BMP images.
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.
