Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Nils Philippsen discovered that GIMP incorrectly handled malformed PSP
image files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted
PSP image file, an attacker could cause GIMP to crash, or possibly
execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
Update the affected gimp package.
