Published: 2013-01-21 04:11:45
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

The remote host is missing an update for the 'gtk2' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
gtk2 on CentOS 5

Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Technical Details:
GIMP Toolkit (GTK+) is a multi-platform toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces. An integer overflow flaw was found in the X BitMap (XBM) image file loader in GTK+. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted XBM image file that, when opened in an application linked against GTK+ (such as Nautilus), would cause the application to crash. (CVE-2012-2370) This update also fixes the following bugs: * Due to a bug in the Input Method GTK+ module, the usage of the Taiwanese Big5 (zh_TW.Big-5) locale led to the unexpected termination of certain applications, such as the GDM greeter. The bug has been fixed, and the Taiwanese locale no longer causes applications to terminate unexpectedly. (BZ#487630) * When a file was initially selected after the GTK+ file chooser dialog was opened and the Location field was visible, pressing the Enter key did not open the file. With this update, the initially selected file is opened regardless of the visibility of the Location field. (BZ#518483) * When a file was initially selected after the GTK+ file chooser dialog was opened and the Location field was visible, pressing the Enter key did not change into the directory. With this update, the dialog changes into the initially selected directory regardless of the visibility of the Location field. (BZ#523657) * Previously, the GTK Print dialog did not reflect the user-defined printer preferences stored in the ~/.cups/lpoptions file, such as those set in the Default Printer preferences panel. Consequently, the first device in the printer list was always set as a default printer. With this update, the underlying source code has been enhanced to parse the option file. As a result, the default values in the print dialog are set to those previously specified by the user. (BZ#603809) * The GTK+ file chooser did not properly handle saving of nameless files. Consequently, attempting to save a file without specifying a file name caused GTK+ to become unresponsive. With this update, an explicit test for this condition has been added into the underlying source code. As a result, GTK+ no longer hangs in the described scenario. (BZ#702342) * When using certain graphics tablets, the GTK+ library incorrectly translated the input coordinates. Consequently, an offset occurred between the position of the pen and the content drawn on the screen. This issue was limited to the following configuration: a Wacom tablet with input coordinates bound to a single monitor in a dual head configuration, drawing with a pen with the pressure sens ...

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
