Fedora 12 : gnome-xcf-thumbnailer-1.0-4.fc12 (2010-17041)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 50520


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes potential stack-based buffer overflows that can allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted image that causes a conversion to a location 'above or to the left of the canvas.'

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected gnome-xcf-thumbnailer package.
