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.
Tomas Hoger discovered that GIMP incorrectly handled malformed LZW
streams. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted GIF
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.
