Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-05-17 08:58:02 EDT
An integer overflow flaw was found in the way X BitMap (XBM) image file format loader of gdk-pixbuf, an image loading library used with GNOME, used to read bitmap file data for certain images. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted XBM image file, which once loaded in an application linked against gdk-pixbuf, would lead to that application termination (GLib error and application abort).
