==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Summary:

GDK-PixBuf could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it
opened a specially crafted file.

Software Description:
- gdk-pixbuf: GDK Pixbuf library

Details:

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.
