Description

Package : libgtk2-perl Version : 2:1.222-1+deb6u1

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.
