Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: May 07, 2007
Bug(s): #176226
ID: 200705-08

Synopsis


GIMP is vulnerable to a buffer overflow which may lead to the execution of
arbitrary code.


Background


GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program.


Affected Packages

Package: media-gfx/gimp
Vulnerable: < 2.2.14
Unaffected: >= 2.2.14
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Marsu discovered that the "set_color_table()" function in the SUNRAS
plugin is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow.


Impact


An attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted .RAS file,
possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges
of the user running GIMP.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All GIMP users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/gimp-2.2.14"
