GLSA-200409-28 : GTK+ 2, gdk-pixbuf: Multiple image decoding vulnerabilities

Synopsis :

The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related

Description :

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200409-28
(GTK+ 2, gdk-pixbuf: Multiple image decoding vulnerabilities)

A vulnerability has been discovered in the BMP image preprocessor
(CAN-2004-0753). Furthermore, Chris Evans found a possible integer overflow
in the pixbuf_create_from_xpm() function, resulting in a heap overflow
(CAN-2004-0782). He also found a potential stack-based buffer overflow in
the xpm_extract_color() function (CAN-2004-0783). A possible integer
overflow has also been found in the ICO decoder.

Impact :

With a specially crafted BMP image an attacker could cause an affected
application to enter an infinite loop when that image is being processed.
Also, by making use of specially crafted XPM or ICO images an attacker
could trigger the overflows, which potentially allows the execution of
arbitrary code.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
