Fedora 16 : gimp-2.6.11-21.fc16 (2011-10761)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 55949
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update adds checks to avoid heap corruption and buffer overflows when loading GIF image files (CVE-2011-2896). Additionally, it fixes a bug which caused GIMP to print an unnecessary warning to the command line on startup.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected gimp package.
