|x11-libs/gdk-pixbuf on all architectures
gdk-pixbuf is an image loading library for GTK+.
Three heap-based buffer overflow vulnerabilities have been discovered in gdk-pixbuf. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All gdk-pixbuf users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=x11-libs/gdk-pixbuf-2.32.1"
Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying these packages.
