[DSA549] DSA-549-1 gtk+ Vulnerability Scan

Vulnerability Scan Summary
DSA-549-1 gtk+

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Chris Evans discovered several problems in gdk-pixbuf, the GdkPixBuf
library used in Gtk. It is possible for a possible hacker to execute
arbitrary code on the victims machine. Gdk-pixbuf for Gtk+1.2 is an
external package. For Gtk+2.0 it's part of the main gtk package.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project identifies the
following vulnerabilities:
Heap-based overflow in pixbuf_create_from_xpm.
Stack-based overflow in xpm_extract_color.
Integer overflow in the ico loader.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.2-5woody2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your Gtk packages.
