Details

Gustavo Grieco discovered that GDK-PixBuf incorrectly handled scaling
bitmap images. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a
BMP image file, a remote attacker could use this flaw to cause GDK-PixBuf
to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
code.
