Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2004:033: gtk2, gdk-pixbuf

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gtk2, gdk-pixbuf package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2004:033 (gtk2, gdk-pixbuf).


gdk-pixbuf is an image loading and rendering library mostly used
by GTK and GNOME applications. It is distributed as a separate
package for gtk1 and integrated into the gtk2 package. Chris
Evans has discovered a heap based, a stack based and an integer
overflow in the XPM and ICO loaders of those libraries. The
overflows can be exploited by tricking an application to display
a malformed image to make it crash or to execute code.
