Synopsis

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

A stack-based buffer overflow flaw, a heap-based buffer overflow, and an integer overflow flaw were found in the way GIMP loaded certain X Window System (XWD) image dump files. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted XWD image file that, when processed, would cause the XWD plug-in to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the GIMP. (CVE-2012-5576, CVE-2013-1913, CVE-2013-1978)

The GIMP must be restarted for the update to take effect.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
