New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote CentOS host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated gimp packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

The GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is an image composition and editing program.

Multiple integer overflow flaws, leading to heap-based buffer overflows, were found in the GIMP's Adobe Photoshop (PSD) image file plug-in. An attacker could create a specially crafted PSD image file that, when opened, could cause the PSD plug-in to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the GIMP. (CVE-2009-3909, CVE-2012-3402)

An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in the GIMP's GIF image format plug-in. An attacker could create a specially crafted GIF image file that, when opened, could cause the GIF plug-in to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the GIMP. (CVE-2012-3481)

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) decompression algorithm implementation used by the GIMP's GIF image format plug-in. An attacker could create a specially crafted GIF image file that, when opened, could cause the GIF plug-in to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the GIMP. (CVE-2011-2896)

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the GIMP's KiSS CEL file format plug-in. An attacker could create a specially crafted KiSS palette file that, when opened, could cause the CEL plug-in to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the GIMP. (CVE-2012-3403)

Red Hat would like to thank Secunia Research for reporting CVE-2009-3909, and Matthias Weckbecker of the SUSE Security Team for reporting CVE-2012-3481.

Users of the GIMP are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The GIMP must be restarted for the update to take effect.
