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

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.

* Fri Jun 24 2011 Matthias Clasen <mclasen@redhat.com> 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
