Debian DLA-1567-1 : gthumb security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 118735
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionCVE-2018-18718 - CWE-415: Double Free The product calls free() twice
on the same memory address, potentially leading to modification of
unexpected memory locations.
There is a suspected double-free bug with static void
add_themes_from_dir() dlg-contact-sheet.c. This method involves two
successive calls of g_free(buffer) (line 354 and 373), and is likely
to cause double-free of the buffer. One possible fix could be directly
assigning the buffer to NULL after the first call of g_free(buffer).

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version
We recommend that you upgrade your gthumb packages.
