Ubuntu 4.10 : gtk+2.0, gdk-pixbuf vulnerabilities (USN-108-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description :

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.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
