Package        : gdk-pixbuf
Vulnerability  : broken image handling
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0111

Thomas Kristensen discovered a vulnerability in gdk-pixbuf (binary
package libgdk-pixbuf2), the GdkPixBuf image library for Gtk, that can
cause the surrounding application to crash.  To exploit this problem,
a remote attacker could send a carefully-crafted BMP file via mail,
which would cause e.g. Evolution to crash but is probably not limited
to Evolution.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.17.0-2woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.22.0-3.

We recommend that you upgrade your libgdk-pixbuf2 package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
