Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 6.10 / 7.04 : gimp vulnerability (USN-467-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 28067
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionIt was discovered that Gimp did not correctly handle RAS image format color tables. By tricking a user into opening a specially crafted RAS file with Gimp, an attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
