Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the gtk+2.0 package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2007:039 (gtk+2.0).

The GdkPixbufLoader function in GIMP ToolKit (GTK+) in GTK 2 (gtk2)
allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (crash)
via a malformed image file. (CVE-2007-0010)
The version of libgtk+2.0 shipped with Mandriva Linux 2007 fails
various portions of the lsb-test-desktop test suite, part of LSB 3.1
certification testing.
The updated packages also address the following issues:
The Home and Desktop entries in the GTK File Chooser are not always
visible (#26644).
GTK+-based applications (which includes all the Mandriva Linux
configuration tools, for example) crash (instead of falling back to the
default theme) when an invalid icon theme is selected. (#27013)
Additional patches from GNOME CVS have been included to address the
following issues from the GNOME bugzilla:
* 357132 - fix RGBA colormap issue
