openSUSE 10 Security Update : gimp-unstable (gimp-unstable-1919)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27238


The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.


A buffer overflow was fixed in the xcf loader in GIMP that allows user-complicit attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via an XCF file with a large num_axes value in the VECTORS property. (CVE-2006-3404)


Update the affected gimp-unstable package.
