USN-5554-1: GDK-PixBuf vulnerability
8 August 2022
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
Pedro Ribeiro discovered that the GDK-PixBuf library did not properly
handle certain GIF images. If an user or automated system were tricked into
opening a specially crafted GIF 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.
