Fedora Core 5 : gimp-2.2.14-5.fc5 (2007-491)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

The GIMP package in Fedora includes a helper script
/usr/sbin/gimp-plugin-mgr for plugins contained in other packages, for
example, xsane-gimp. This script manages symlinks from the GIMP plugin
directory (which may change between upgrades) to the actual location
of the plugins.

A bug has been fixed in this erratum of GIMP that was in all older
GIMP packages. The bug concerns the execution order in which the
symlinks are installed and removed, causing the symlinks to vanish
when the GIMP package is updated.

Although this GIMP erratum has the execution order fixed, due to the
nature of the problem it will show up once more when updating from an
affected version to a fixed version. To add these symlinks back in,
run this command, providing the root password when prompted :

su -c '/usr/sbin/gimp-plugin-mgr --install '*'

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
