SUSE-SA:2004:033: gtk2, gdk-pixbuf

High Nessus Plugin ID 14769


The remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch


The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2004:033 (gtk2, gdk-pixbuf).

gdk-pixbuf is an image loading and rendering library mostly used by GTK and GNOME applications. It is distributed as a separate package for gtk1 and integrated into the gtk2 package. Chris Evans has discovered a heap based, a stack based and an integer overflow in the XPM and ICO loaders of those libraries. The overflows can be exploited by tricking an application to display a malformed image to make it crash or to execute code.
