    Package        : gdk-pixbuf
    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-7552 CVE-2015-8875
    
    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in gdk-pixbuf, a toolkit
    for image loading and pixel buffer manipulation. A remote attacker can
    take advantage of these flaws to cause a denial-of-service against an
    application using gdk-pixbuf (application crash), or potentially, to
    execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the
    application, if a malformed image is opened.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.31.1-2+deb8u5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gdk-pixbuf packages.
