The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
During testing of a previously fixed flaw in Qt (CVE-2004-0691), a
flaw was discovered in the BMP image processor of gdk-pixbuf. An
attacker could create a carefully crafted BMP file which would cause
an application to enter an infinite loop and not respond to user input
when the file was opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0753
to this issue.
During a security audit, Chris Evans discovered a stack and a heap
overflow in the XPM image decoder. An attacker could create a
carefully crafted XPM file which could cause an application linked
with gtk2 to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when the file
was opened by a victim. (CVE-2004-0782, CVE-2004-0783)
Chris Evans also discovered an integer overflow in the ICO image
decoder. An attacker could create a carefully crafted ICO file which
could cause an application linked with gtk2 to crash when the file is
opened by a victim. (CVE-2004-0788)
