Vulnerability Assessment Details

SUSE-SA:2005:065: 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:2005:065 (gtk2, gdk-pixbuf).


The image loading library of the gdk-pixbug/gtk2 package is vulnerable
to several security-related bugs. This makes every application (mostly
GNOME applications) which is linked against this library vulnerable too.

A carefully crafted XPM file can be used to execute arbitrary code while
processing the image file. (CVE-2005-3186)

Additionally Ludwig Nussel from the SuSE Security-Team discovered an
integer overflow bug that can be used to execute arbitray code too
(CVE-2005-2976), and an infinite loop which leads to a denial-of-service
bug. (CVE-2005-2975)
