SUSE-SA:2005:065: gtk2, gdk-pixbuf
High Nessus Plugin ID 20239
SynopsisThe remote host is missing a vendor-supplied security patch.
DescriptionThe remote host is missing the patch for the advisory SUSE-SA:2005:065 (gtk2, gdk-pixbuf).
The image loading library of the gdk-pixbug/gtk2 package is vulnerable to several security-related bugs. This makes every application (mostly GNOME applications) which is linked against this library vulnerable too.
A carefully crafted XPM file can be used to execute arbitrary code while processing the image file. (CVE-2005-3186)
Additionally Ludwig Nussel from the SuSE Security-Team discovered an integer overflow bug that can be used to execute arbitrary code too (CVE-2005-2976), and an infinite loop which leads to a denial of service bug. (CVE-2005-2975)
