Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the gtk packages
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
Updated gtk2 packages that fix a security issue are now available.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.
The gtk2 package contains the GIMP ToolKit (GTK+), a library for creating
graphical user interfaces for the X Window System.
A bug was found in the way the gtk2 GdkPixbufLoader() function processed
invalid input. Applications linked against gtk2 could crash if they
loaded a malformed image file. (CVE-2007-0010)
Users of gtk2 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
