From ${URL} :

A remotely exploitable vulnerability was found in the bmp decoder in gdk-pixbuf. A maliciously crafted file could cause the application to crash.

Upstream bug:

Upstream fix:

@maintainer(s): after the bump, in case we need to stabilize the package, please let us know if it is ready for the stabilization or not.

This is present in gdk-pixbuf-2.35.3 release. I will backport the patch to 2.34.
Comment 2 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2016-11-02 23:48:05 UTC
2.36 was added to the tree masked with Gnome 3.22. If there is any hurry, I can remove it from mask as it appears to be fine on a stable system, otherwise, I should unmask Gnome 3.22 by this weekend.
Comment 3 Gilles Dartiguelongue gentoo-dev 2016-11-12 15:05:24 UTC
2.36 is now unmasked. Feel free to go ahead and stabilize it if needed.
Comment 4 Christopher Díaz Riveros (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2017-07-20 17:37:35 UTC

The package seems to be stable on all stable arches, and there is no cleanup to do, should we vote for a GLSA and if not necessary close the report?
