- Date Reported:
- 25 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 the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 2:1.244-1+deb7u1.
For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 2:1.2492-4.
For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2:1.2492-4.
We recommend that you upgrade your libgtk2-perl packages.
