Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : gimp (MDKSA-2007:170)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 25947


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


Multiple integer overflows in the image loader plug-ins in GIMP before 2.2.16 allow user-assisted remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted length values in (1) DICOM, (2) PNM, (3) PSD, (4) PSP, (5) Sun RAS, (6) XBM, and (7) XWD files. (CVE-2006-4519)

Integer overflow in the seek_to_and_unpack_pixeldata function in the psd.c plugin in Gimp 2.2.15 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted PSD file that contains a large (1) width or (2) height value. (CVE-2007-2949)

Victor Stinner has discovered several flaws in file plug-ins using his fuzzyfier tool fusil. Several modified image files cause the plug-ins to crash or consume excessive amounts of memory due to insufficient input validation. Affected plug-ins: bmp, pcx, psd, psp (*.tub).

Updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.


Update the affected packages.
