The gtk2 package contains the GIMP ToolKit (GTK+), a library for creating graphical user interfaces for the X Window System.
A bug was found in the way the gtk2 GdkPixbufLoader() function processed invalid input. Applications linked against gtk2 could crash if they loaded a malformed image file. (CVE-2007-0010)
Users of gtk2 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
