Fedora Core 3 Update: gdk-pixbuf-0.22.0-16.fc3
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Fedora David Costanzo found a bug in the way gdk-pixbuf processes BMP images. It is possible that a specially crafted BMP image could cause a denial of service attack in applications linked against gdk-pixbuf. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0891 to this issue.
