GLSA-200511-14 : GTK+ 2, GdkPixbuf: Multiple XPM decoding vulnerabilities

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

Description :

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

Impact :

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.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
