Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 3 2005-1087: 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-2005-1087 (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:

The gtk2 package contains the GIMP ToolKit (GTK+), a library
for creating graphical user interfaces for the X Window System.

A bug was found in the way gtk2 processes XPM images. An
attacker could create a carefully crafted XPM file in such a
way that it could cause an application linked with gtk2 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 infinite-loop denial of service
bug in the way gtk2 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 gtk2 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 gtk2 are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain backported patches and are not
vulnerable to these issues.
