The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200511-14
(GTK+ 2, GdkPixbuf: Multiple XPM decoding vulnerabilities)
iDEFENSE reported a possible heap overflow in the XPM loader
(CVE-2005-3186). Upon further inspection, Ludwig Nussel discovered two
additional issues in the XPM processing functions : an integer overflow
(CVE-2005-2976) that affects only gdk-pixbuf, and an infinite loop
Using a specially crafted XPM image an attacker could cause an
affected application to enter an infinite loop or trigger the
overflows, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
