Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GIMP, allowing for the remote execution of arbitrary code.

Affected Packages

media-gfx/gimp on all architectures

Background

GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program.

Description

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).
