This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated gimp package fixes security vulnerabilities :

An integer overflow flaw and a heap-based buffer overflow were found
in the way GIMP loaded certain X Window System (XWD) image dump files.
A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted XWD image file
that, when processed, would cause the XWD plug-in to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running the GIMP (CVE-2013-1913, CVE-2013-1978).
