3. Description:

 

The GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is an image composition and

editing program.

 

An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was

found in the GIMP's GIF image format plug-in. An attacker could create a

specially-crafted GIF image file that, when opened, could cause the GIF

plug-in to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the

privileges of the user running the GIMP. (CVE-2012-3481)

 

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW)

decompression algorithm implementation used by the GIMP's GIF image format

plug-in. An attacker could create a specially-crafted GIF image file that,

when opened, could cause the GIF plug-in to crash or, potentially, execute

arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the GIMP.

(CVE-2011-2896)

 

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the GIMP's KiSS CEL file

format plug-in. An attacker could create a specially-crafted KiSS palette

file that, when opened, could cause the CEL plug-in to crash or,

potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running

the GIMP. (CVE-2012-3403)

 

Red Hat would like to thank Matthias Weckbecker of the SUSE Security Team

for reporting the CVE-2012-3481 issue.

 

Users of the GIMP are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which

contain backported patches to correct these issues. The GIMP must be

restarted for the update to take effect.

 

4. Solution:

 

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata

relevant to your system have been applied.
