<p>gdk-pixbuf is an image loading library for GTK+.</p>
<p>Three heap-based buffer overflow vulnerabilities have been discovered in
gdk-pixbuf. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for
<impact type="normal">
<p>A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted image
file with an application linked against gdk-pixbuf, possibly resulting in
execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a
Denial of Service condition.
<p>There is no known workaround at this time.</p>
<p>All gdk-pixbuf users should upgrade to the latest version:</p>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "&gt;=x11-libs/gdk-pixbuf-2.32.1"
<p>Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying these packages.
