The GdkPixbuf library, that is also included in GTK+ 2, contains
vulnerabilities that could lead to a Denial of Service or the execution
of arbitrary code.
Solution: a patch for gtk+-2.x is required (URL below).
Will integrate this asap.
(BTW, Gerrit, what are your plans for GTK/GNOME? I'm willing to take
stuff over if you've lost interest.)
Ok. Just prepare what is needed next and notify seperately when you're
uploading. You are able to upload yourself?
