Fedora 15 : gdk-pixbuf2-2.23.3-2.fc15 (2011-8672)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

It was found that gdk-pixbuf GIF image loader
gdk_pixbuf__gif_image_load() routine did not properly handle certain
return values from their subroutines. A remote attacker could provide
a specially crafted GIF image, which once opened in an application,
linked against gdk-pixbuf would lead to gdk-pixbuf to return partially
initialized pixbuf structure, possibly having huge width and height,
leading to that particular application termination due excessive
memory use.

The CVE identifier of CVE-2011-2485 has been assigned to this issue.

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.
