X.
Description :
GTK+ is a multi-platform toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces. Offering a complete set of widgets, GTK+ is suitable for projects ranging from small one-off tools to complete application suites.

Update Information:

David Costanzo found a bug in the way GTK+ processes BMP images. It is possible that a specially crafted BMP image could cause a denial of service attack in applications linked against GTK+. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0891 to this issue.
