Description

Updated gtk2 packages that fix a security issue are now available. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The gtk2 package contains the GIMP ToolKit (GTK+), a library for creating graphical user interfaces for the X Window System. A bug was found in the way the gtk2 GdkPixbufLoader() function processed invalid input. Applications linked against gtk2 could crash if they loaded a malformed image file. (CVE-2007-0010) Users of gtk2 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.

Solution(s)

  • centos-upgrade-gtk2
  • centos-upgrade-gtk2-devel
