SuSE9 Security Update : gdk-pixbuf (YOU Patch Number 9368)

High Nessus Plugin ID 41331


The remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.


Three security vulnerabilities have been found in the loader for XPM images of the GTK library. These issues are :

- Potential heap overflow in pixbuf_create_from_xpm().

- Potential stack overflow in xpm_extract_color().

- Potential integer overflow in the ICO icon format loader. (CVE-2004-0788)

Depending on the actual application calling the affected library functions, these bugs may be locally or remotely exploitable.

This update fixes a bug in earlier update packages for the same problem.


Apply YOU patch number 9368.
