Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GIMP, allowing for the remote execution of arbitrary code.
|Package||media-gfx/gimp on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 2.2.16|
|Unaffected versions||>= 2.2.16|
GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program.
Sean Larsson from iDefense Labs discovered multiple integer overflows in various GIMP plugins (CVE-2006-4519). Stefan Cornelius from Secunia Research discovered an integer overflow in the seek_to_and_unpack_pixeldata() function when processing PSD files (CVE-2007-2949).
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted image file, possibly resulting in 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-2.2.16"
