It was discovered that the original fix for CVE-2015-7552 (DLA-450-1) was incomplete.
A heap-based buffer overflow in gdk-pixbuf, a library for image loading and saving facilities, fast scaling and compositing of pixbufs, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted BMP file.
