Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : gimp (MDKSA-2007:108)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 25310


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


Marsu discovered a stack overflow issue in the GIMP's RAS file loader.
An attacker could create a carefully crafted file that would cause the GIMP to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code as the user opening the file.

The updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.


Update the affected packages.
