    3. Problem description:
    
    The gtk2 package contains the GIMP ToolKit (GTK+), a library for creating
    graphical user interfaces for the X Window System. 
    
    A bug was found in the way gtk2 processes BMP images. It is possible
    that a specially crafted BMP image could cause a denial of service attack
    on applications linked against gtk2. The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0891 to
    this issue.
    
    Users of gtk2 are advised to upgrade to these packages, which contain
    a backported patch and is not vulnerable to this issue.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
    errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
    Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
    Update Agent, use the following command:
    
        up2date
    
    For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
    following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
    guide specific to your system:
