SOT Linux Security Advisory
Subject: Updated gdk-pixbuf package for SOT Linux 2003
1. Problem description
The gdk-pixbuf library is a toolkit for image loading and pixel buffer manipulation that you can use in conjunction with libart. Gdk-pixbuf also provides convenience functions for progressive image loading, animation, and rendering the libart image buffer to a GdkDrawable instance.
A vulnerability in gdk-pixbuf versions before 0.20 exists that could allow a malicious BMP file to crash the Evolution mail client. The updated packages have been patched to use gdk-pixbuf 0.22.0's BMPhandling code.
