Synopsis
========

The GdkPixbuf library, which is also included in GTK+ 2, contains
several vulnerabilities that could lead to a Denial of Service or the
execution of arbitrary code.

Background
==========

GTK+ (GIMP Toolkit +) is a toolkit for creating graphical user
interfaces. The GdkPixbuf library provides facilities for image
handling. It is available as a standalone library as well as shipped
with GTK+ 2.

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

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package                /   Vulnerable   /              Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  x11-libs/gtk+              < 2.4.9-r1                 >= 2.4.9-r1
                                                               < 2.0.0
  2  media-libs/gdk-pixbuf      < 0.22.0-r3               >= 0.22.0-r3
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     2 affected packages on all of their supported architectures.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

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

A vulnerability has been discovered in the BMP image preprocessor
(CAN-2004-0753). Furthermore, Chris Evans found a possible integer
overflow in the pixbuf_create_from_xpm() function, resulting in a heap
overflow (CAN-2004-0782). He also found a potential stack-based buffer
overflow in the xpm_extract_color() function (CAN-2004-0783). A
possible integer overflow has also been found in the ICO decoder.

Impact
======

With a specially crafted BMP image an attacker could cause an affected
application to enter an infinite loop when that image is being
processed. Also, by making use of specially crafted XPM or ICO images
an attacker could trigger the overflows, which potentially allows the
execution of arbitrary code.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All GTK+ 2 users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=x11-libs/gtk+-2.4.9-r1"
    # emerge ">=x11-libs/gtk+-2.4.9-r1"

All GdkPixbuf users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge sync

    # emerge -pv ">=media-libs/gdk-pixbuf-0.22.0-r3"
    # emerge ">=media-libs/gdk-pixbuf-0.22.0-r3"
