3. Problem description:

The gdk-pixbuf package contains an image loading library used with the
GNOME GUI desktop environment.

A bug was found in the way gdk-pixbuf processes BMP images. It is possible
that a specially crafted BMP image could cause a denial of service attack
on applications linked against gdk-pixbuf. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0891 to
this issue.

Users of gdk-pixbuf are advised to upgrade to these packages, which contain
a backported patch and is not vulnerable to this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
Update Agent, use the following command:

    up2date

For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
guide specific to your system:
