This means:

https://git.gnome.org/browse/gdk-pixbuf/commit/?id=19f9685dbff7d1f929c61cf99188df917a18811d
https://git.gnome.org/browse/gdk-pixbuf/commit/?id=edf6fb8d856574bc3bb3a703037f56533229267c
https://git.gnome.org/browse/gdk-pixbuf/commit/?id=6ddca835100107e6b5841ce9d56074f6d98c387e

Use CVE-2015-7673. Apparently the cause of the issue was use of heap
memory after an allocation failure.

The original CVE request said "< 2.32.1" and "only fixed in ...
2.32.1" but then a followup message said "fixed in 2.32.0" instead. We
think the latter is correct.

The entry in the 2.32.0 changelog is shown in:
https://git.gnome.org/browse/gdk-pixbuf/commit/?id=02a76ac6956ee1418da926d6f2cedb78525495b7

CVE-2015-4491 from mfsa2015-88 has different affected versions. Also, that
CVE is only for an integer overflow. If missing allocation-failure checking
before ffec86ed5010c5a2be14f47b33bcf4ed3169a199
is separately exploitable, then another CVE ID could be assigned.
