Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-286
2004-09-15
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 1
Name : gdk-pixbuf
Version : 0.22.0
Release : 11.2.2
Summary : An image loading library used with GNOME.
Description :
The gdk-pixbuf package contains an image loading library used with the GNOME GUI desktop environment. The GdkPixBuf library provides image loading facilities, the rendering of a GdkPixBuf into various formats (drawables or GdkRGB buffers), and a cache interface.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

During testing of a previously fixed flaw in Qt (CAN-2004-0691), a flaw was discovered in the BMP image processor of gdk-pixbuf. An attacker could create a carefully crafted BMP file which would cause an application to enter an infinite loop and not respond to user input when the file was opened by a victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0753 to this issue.

During a security audit, Chris Evans discovered a stack and a heap overflow in the XPM image decoder. An attacker could create a carefully crafted XPM file which could cause an application linked with gtk2 to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code when the file was opened by a victim. (CAN-2004-0782, CAN-2004-0783)

Chris Evans also discovered an integer overflow in the ICO image decoder. An attacker could create a carefully crafted ICO file which could cause an application linked with gtk2 to crash when the file is opened by a victim. (CAN-2004-0788)
