Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-1086 (gdk-pixbuf).

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:

The gdk-pixbuf package contains an image loading library
used with the GNOME GUI desktop environment.

A bug was found in the way gdk-pixbuf processes XPM images.
A possible hacker could create a carefully crafted XPM file in
such a way that it could cause an application linked with
gdk-pixbuf to execute arbitrary code when the file was
opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project has assigned the name CVE-2005-3186 to this issue.

Ludwig Nussel discovered an integer overflow bug in the way
gdk-pixbuf processes XPM images. A possible hacker could create a
carefully crafted XPM file in such a way that it could cause
an application linked with gdk-pixbuf to execute arbitrary
code or crash when the file was opened by a victim. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned
the name CVE-2005-2976 to this issue.

Ludwig Nussel also discovered an infinite-loop denial of
service bug in the way gdk-pixbuf processes XPM images. An
attacker could create a carefully crafted XPM file in such a
way that it could cause an application linked with
gdk-pixbuf to stop responding when the file was opened by a
victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has
assigned the name CVE-2005-2975 to this issue.

Users of gdk-pixbuf are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain backported patches and are not
vulnerable to these issues.
