Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Updated gimp packages that fix several security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.

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

Multiple integer overflow and input validation flaws were found in The
GIMP's image loaders. An attacker could create a carefully crafted
image file that could cause The GIMP to crash or possibly execute
arbitrary code if the file was opened by a victim. (CVE-2006-4519,
CVE-2007-2949, CVE-2007-3741)

Users of The GIMP should update to these erratum packages, which
contain a backported fix to correct these issues.
