<background>
<p>gdk-pixbuf is an image loading library for GTK+.</p>
</background>
<description>
<p>Two vulnerabilities have been found in gdk-pixbuf:</p>
<ul>
<li>The "gdk_pixbuf__gif_image_load()" function in io-gif.c fails to
properly handle certain return values from subroutines (CVE-2011-2485).
</li>
<li>The "read_bitmap_file_data()" function in io-xbm.c contains an
integer overflow error (CVE-2012-2370).
</li>
</ul>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>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.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>All gdk-pixbuf users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=x11-libs/gdk-pixbuf-2.24.1-r1"
</code>
<p>Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
