FreeBSD : gdk-pixbuf -- image decoding vulnerabilities (3d1e9267-073f-11d9-b45d-000c41e2cdad)

High Nessus Plugin ID 18908


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


Chris Evans discovered several flaws in the gdk-pixbuf XPM image decoder :

- Heap-based overflow in pixbuf_create_from_xpm

- Stack-based overflow in xpm_extract_color

- Integer overflows in io-ico.c

Some of these flaws are believed to be exploitable.


Update the affected packages.
