Description

This update includes a fix for a denial-of-service issue (CVE-2007-3568) whereby an attacker who could get an imlib-using user to view a specially crafted BMP image could cause the user's CPU to go into an infinite loop.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
