|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: GIMP: Buffer overflow (GLSA 200705-08)
Date: May 07, 2007
GIMP is vulnerable to a buffer overflow which may lead to the execution of
GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program.
Vulnerable: < 2.2.14
Unaffected: >= 2.2.14
Architectures: All supported architectures
Marsu discovered that the "set_color_table()" function in the SUNRAS
plugin is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow.
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.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GIMP users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/gimp-2.2.14"
