GdkPixbuf BMP parser may enter an infinite loop

Vulnerability Note VU#825374

Original Release Date: 2004-10-01 | Last Revised: 2004-11-02

Overview

A vulnerability exists in the BMP handling of GdkPixbuf. This vulnerability can lead to a denial-of-service condition.

Description

GdkPixbuf is a library used by GTK+ 2 for loading and rendering images. GTK+ is a multi-platform toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces. It is used by the Gnome desktop and other applications. GdkPixbuf contains a heap overflow vulnerability in the DoCompressed() function of the BMP loading routine.

Impact

By convincing the user to open a specially crafted BMP file, an attacker could cause a denial of service by crashing the application that uses GdkPixbuf.

Solution

Apply a patch from your vendor

For vendor-specific information regarding vulnerable status and patch availability, please see the vendor section of this document.

Upgrade your version of gtk+

Upgrade your system as specified by your vendor. If you need to compile the software from the original source, get gtk+ 2.4.10.
