Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Buffer overflow in the ReadImage function in generic/tkImgGIF.c in Tcl
(Tcl/Tk) before 8.4.16 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary
code via multi-frame interlaced GIF files in which later frames are
smaller than the first.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
