Scientific Linux Security Update : gimp on SL5.x, SL4.x, SL3.x i386/x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 60187
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionMarsu discovered a stack overflow bug in The GIMP RAS file loader. An attacker could create a carefully crafted file that could cause The GIMP to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code if the file was opened by a victim. (CVE-2007-2356)
For users of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, the previous GIMP packages had a bug that concerned the execution order in which the symbolic links to externally packaged GIMP plugins are installed and removed, causing the symbolic links to vanish when the package is updated.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
