Debian DLA-434-1 : gtk+2.0 security update

medium Nessus Plugin ID 88995


The remote Debian host is missing a security update.


Gustavo Grieco discovered different security issues in Gtk+2.0's gdk-pixbuf.


Heap overflow when processing BMP images which may allow to execute of arbitrary code via malformed images.


Heap overflow when processing TGA images which may allow execute arbitrary code or denial of service (process crash) via malformed images.


Integer overflow when processing GIF images which may allow to execute arbitrary code or denial of service (process crash) via malformed image.

For Debian 6 'Squeeze', these issues have been fixed in gtk+2.0 version 2.20.1-2+deb6u2. We recommend you to upgrade your gtk+2.0 packages.
