USN108-1 : gtk+2.0, gdk-pixbuf vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
gtk+2.0, gdk-pixbuf vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- gtk2.0-examples
- libgdk-pixbuf-dev
- libgdk-pixbuf-gnome-dev

Matthias Clasen discovered a Denial of Service vulnerability in the
BMP image module of gdk. Processing a specially crafted BMP image with
an application using gdk-pixbuf caused an allocated memory block to be
free()'ed twice, leading to a crash of the application. However, it
is believed that this cannot be exploited to execute arbitrary
attacker provided code.
