Description Josh Bressers 2005-10-27 12:49:29 EDT
These issues were reported by Ludwig Nussel of Suse.

When gdk-pixbuf processes a bad XPM file, it fails to verify that width * height
* colors doesn't cause an integer overflow.

Additionally gdk-pixbuf will enter an infinite loop if the number of colors
provided is very large, but not large enough to cause an integer overflow.

These issues should also affect RHEL2.1 and RHEL3.
