RHEL 2.1 / 3 : gdk-pixbuf (RHSA-2004:103)

Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

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, an
attacker 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.
