Fedora 16 : gimp-2.6.11-21.fc16 (2011-10761)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update adds checks to avoid heap corruption and buffer overflows
when loading GIF image files (CVE-2011-2896). Additionally, it fixes a
bug which caused GIMP to print an unnecessary warning to the command
line on startup.

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.
