New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 4.4
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201206-20 (gdk-pixbuf: Denial of Service)
Two vulnerabilities have been found in gdk-pixbuf:
The 'gdk_pixbuf__gif_image_load()' function in io-gif.c fails to properly handle certain return values from subroutines (CVE-2011-2485).
The 'read_bitmap_file_data()' function in io-xbm.c contains an integer overflow error (CVE-2012-2370).
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted image in an application linked against gdk-pixbuf, possibly resulting in Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll gdk-pixbuf users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=x11-libs/gdk-pixbuf-2.24.1-r1' Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
