Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2004-103: gdk

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gdk packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated gdk-pixbuf packages that fix a crash are now available.

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

Thomas Kristensen discovered a bitmap file that would cause versions of
gdk-pixbuf prior to 0.20 to crash. To exploit this flaw, a possible hacker would
need to get a victim to open a carefully-crafted BMP file in an application
that used gdk-pixbuf. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0111 to this issue.

Users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages containing
gdk-pixbuf version 0.22, which is not vulnerable to this issue.
