gdk-pixbuf read_bitmap_file_data() buffer overflow
|gdkpixbuf-readbitmapfiledata-bo (75578)||High Risk|
The gdk-pixbuf package is vulnerable to a heap-based buffer overflow, caused by an integer overflow within the read_bitmap_file_data() function when processing malicious files. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted XBM file, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
Apply the patch for this vulnerability, available from the gdk-pixbuf GIT Repository. See References.
