Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities in gdk-pixbuf may create a Denial of Service
condition.

Background
==========

gdk-pixbuf is an image loading library for GTK+.

Affected packages
=================

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  x11-libs/gdk-pixbuf        < 2.24.1-r1              >= 2.24.1-r1

Description
===========

Two vulnerabilities have been found in gdk-pixbuf:

* The "gdk_pixbuf__gif_image_load()" function in io-gif.c fails to
  properly handle certain return values from subroutines
  (CVE-2011-2485).
* The "read_bitmap_file_data()" function in io-xbm.c contains an
  integer overflow error (CVE-2012-2370).

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted image
in an application linked against gdk-pixbuf, possibly resulting in
Denial of Service.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All gdk-pixbuf users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=x11-libs/gdk-pixbuf-2.24.1-r1"

Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these
packages.
