Debian Security Advisory
DLA-161-1 libgtk2-perl -- LTS security update
- Date Reported:
- 28 Feb 2015
- Affected Packages:
- Security database references:
- No other external database security references currently available.
- More information:
It was discovered that libgtk2-perl, a Perl interface to the 2.x series of the Gimp Toolkit library, incorrectly frees memory which GTK+ still holds onto and might access later, leading to denial of service (application crash) or, potentially, to arbitrary code execution.
For Debian 6
Squeeze, these issues have been fixed in libgtk2-perl version 2:1.222-1+deb6u1
