Title: GIMP: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201311-05)
Date: November 10, 2013
Bug(s): #434580, #444280
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in GIMP, the worst of
which allow execution of arbitrary code.
GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program.
Vulnerable: < 2.8.2-r1
Unaffected: >= 2.8.2-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GIMP. Please review the
CVE identifiers referenced below for details.
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted KiSS
palette, GIF image or XWD file using GIMP, possibly resulting in
execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a
Denial of Service condition.
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-2.8.2-r1"
