Fedora Core 1 : gdk-pixbuf-0.22.0-11.2.2 (2004-286)
High Nessus Plugin ID 14741
SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.
DescriptionDuring testing of a previously fixed flaw in Qt (CVE-2004-0691), a flaw was discovered in the BMP image processor of gdk-pixbuf. An attacker could create a carefully crafted BMP file which would cause an application to enter an infinite loop and not respond to user input when the file was opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0753 to this issue.
During a security audit, Chris Evans discovered a stack and a heap overflow in the XPM image decoder. An attacker could create a carefully crafted XPM file which could cause an application linked with gtk2 to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when the file was opened by a victim. (CVE-2004-0782, CVE-2004-0783)
Chris Evans also discovered an integer overflow in the ICO image decoder. An attacker could create a carefully crafted ICO file which could cause an application linked with gtk2 to crash when the file is opened by a victim. (CVE-2004-0788)
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.
