FreeBSD : gdk-pixbuf2 -- heap overflow and DoS (f5b8b670-465c-11e5-a49d-bcaec565249c)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 85562
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Gustavo Grieco reports :

We found a heap overflow and a DoS in the gdk-pixbuf implementation triggered by the scaling of a malformed bmp.


Update the affected package.
