USN-3912-1: GDK-PixBuf vulnerability
20 March 2019
GDK-PixBuf could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it opened a specially crafted file.
- gdk-pixbuf - GDK Pixbuf library
It was discovered that the GDK-PixBuf library did not properly handle
certain BMP images. If an user or automated system were tricked into
opening a specially crafted BMP 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.
