Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2009-2369 to
the following vulnerability:

Integer overflow in the wxImage::Create function in src/common/image.cpp in wxWidgets 2.8.10 allows attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted JPEG file, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow. NOTE: the provenance of this information is unknown; the details are obtained solely from third party information.

Comment 12 Dan Horák 2009-08-31 08:21:54 UTC
Jan, who is responsible for closing security bugs after the updates were pushed out? Is it the security team or the package maintaners?

Comment 13 Vincent Danen 2009-08-31 14:59:17 UTC
Dan, typically SRT will close these but it is a bit of hit-or-miss due to what is shipped.  If Fedora fixes it, great, but if it is also shipped in RHEL, then it can't be closed if it hasn't been dealt with there.  In this case, wxGTK is not included in RHEL so this could be closed, but in a lot of cases when something affects Fedora and RHEL, maintainers should not close the bugs because they still need to be dealt with in RHEL.

So in general, no, we do not want maintainers closing these bugs.
