Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2011-8667
2011-06-24 17:35:52
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : gdk-pixbuf2
Product     : Fedora 14
Version     : 2.22.0
Release     : 2.fc14
URL         : http://www.gt.org
Summary     : An image loading library
Description :
gdk-pixbuf is an image loading library that can be extended by loadable
modules for new image formats. It is used by toolkits such as GTK+ or
clutter.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

It was found that gdk-pixbuf GIF image loader gdk_pixbuf__gif_image_load()
routine did not properly handle certain return values from their
subroutines. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted GIF image,
which once opened in an application, linked against gdk-pixbuf would lead
to gdk-pixbuf
to return partially initialized pixbuf structure, possibly having huge
width and height, leading to that particular application termination due
excessive memory use.

The CVE identifier of CVE-2011-2485 has been assigned to this issue.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Fri Jun 24 2011 Matthias Clasen  2.22.0-2
- Don't return a partially initialized pixbuf structure
  from the GIF loader (CVE-2011-2485)
* Wed Sep 29 2010 jkeating - 2.22.0-1.1
- Rebuilt for gcc bug 634757
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update gdk-pixbuf2' at the command line.
