CVE-2017-2862 (

An exploitable heap overflow vulnerability exists in the gdk_pixbuf__jpeg_image_load_increment functionality of Gdk-Pixbuf 2.36.6. A specially crafted jpeg file can cause a heap overflow resulting in remote code execution. An attacker can send a file or url to trigger this vulnerability. 


CVE-2017-2870 (

An exploitable integer overflow vulnerability exists in the tiff_image_parse functionality of Gdk-Pixbuf 2.36.6 when compiled with Clang. A specially crafted tiff file can cause a heap-overflow resulting in remote code execution. An attacker can send a file or a URL to trigger this vulnerability. 


@Maintainer(s): The fixed version needs to be stabilized for ppc, ppc64, and hppa in order to remove it from the tree.
