Description Laura Pardo 2018-11-05 21:25:19 UTC
An issue was discovered in gThumb through 3.6.2. There is a double-free vulnerability in the add_themes_from_dir method in dlg-contact-sheet.c because of two successive calls of g_free, each of which frees the same buffer.

Created gthumb tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: epel-7 [bug 1646710]
Affects: fedora-all [bug 1646709]

Comment 2 Adam Mariš 2018-11-21 10:33:26 UTC
Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of gthumb as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 as they did not include the vulnerable code.
