A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:
Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
The following packages are affected:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to version 0.22.0-7ubuntu1.1 (libgdk-pixbuf2) and 2.4.10-1ubuntu1.1 (libgtk2.0-0). In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
Matthias Clasen discovered a Denial of Service vulnerability in the BMP image module of gdk. Processing a specially crafted BMP image with an application using gdk-pixbuf caused an allocated memory block to be free()'ed twice, leading to a crash of the application. However, it is believed that this cannot be exploited to execute arbitrary attacker provided code.
