Debian: New gdk-pixbuf packages fix several vulnerabilities

Chris Evans discovered several problems in gdk-pixbuf, the GdkPixBuf library used in Gtk. It is possible for an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the victims machine. The new packages fix a denial of service in the bmp loader, a heap-based overflow in pixbuf_create_from_xpm, and an integer overflow in the ico loader. Fixed packages are available from

Package        : gdk-pixbuf
Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0753 CAN-2004-0782 CAN-2004-0788

Chris Evans discovered several problems in gdk-pixbuf, the GdkPixBuf
library used in Gtk.  It is possible for an attacker to execute
arbitrary code on the victims machine.  Gdk-pixbuf for Gtk+1.2 is an
external package.  For Gtk+2.0 it's part of the main gtk package.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project identifies the
following vulnerabilities:


    Denial of service in bmp loader.


    Heap-based overflow in pixbuf_create_from_xpm.


    Integer overflow in the ico loader.

For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.17.0-2woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 0.22.0-7.

We recommend that you upgrade your gdk-pixbuf packages.
