This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in gimp :

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw, leading to invalid free, was found
in the way KISS CEL file format plug-in of Gimp, the GNU Image
Manipulation Program, performed loading of certain palette files. A
remote attacker could provide a specially crafted KISS palette file
that, when opened in Gimp would cause the CEL plug-in to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running the gimp executable (CVE-2012-3403).

Integer overflow, leading to heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found
in the GIMP's GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) image file plug-in. An
attacker could create a specially crafted GIF image file that, when
opened, could cause the GIF plug-in to crash or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the GIMP
(CVE-2012-3481).

The updated gimp packages have been upgraded to the 2.6.12 version and
patched to correct these issues.

Additionally for Mandriva Enterprise server 5 the gegl packages was
upgraded to the 0.0.22 version and rebuilt for ffmpeg 0.5.9, the
enscript packages was added because of a build dependency, the
gutenprint and mtink packages was rebuilt against the gimp 2.6.12
libraries.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
