Medium Nessus Plugin ID 61703


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


Among other things this update fixes security and stability issues in various image format loaders. Security issues fixed include CVE-2012-3403 and CVE-2012-3481.

Overview of Changes from GIMP 2.8.0 to GIMP 2.8.2 =================================================

Core :

- Make tag matching always case-insensitive

- Let the tile-cache-size default to half the physical memory


- Mention that the image was exported in the close warning dialog

- Make sure popup windows appear on top on OSX

- Allow file opening by dropping to the OSX dock

- Fix the visibility logic of the export/overwrite menu items

- Remove all 'Use GEGL' menu items, they only add bugs and zero function

- Improve performance of display filters, especially color management

- Fix the image window title to comply with the save/export spec and use the same image name everywhere, not only in the title

- Fix positioning of pasted/dropped stuff to be more reasonable

Libgimp :
