Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2015-7552.
More information:

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.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 2.26.1-1+deb7u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your gdk-pixbuf packages.
