[slackware-security]  gtk+2 (SSA:2016-254-02)

New gtk+2 packages are available for Slackware 14.1, 14.2, and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/gtk+2-2.24.31-i586-1_slack14.2.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update fixes a security issue:  Integer overflow in the
  gdk_cairo_set_source_pixbuf function in gdk/gdkcairo.c allows remote
  attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a large image file,
  which triggers a large memory allocation.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2013-7447
  (* Security fix *)
