From Red Hat Security Advisory 2016:2589 :

An update for gimp and gimp-help is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

The GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is an image composition and editing program. GIMP provides a large image manipulation toolbox, including channel operations and layers, effects, sub-pixel imaging and anti-aliasing, and conversions, all with multi-level undo.

The following packages have been upgraded to a newer upstream version:
gimp (2.8.16), gimp-help (2.8.2). (BZ#1298226, BZ#1370595)

Security Fix(es) :

* Multiple use-after-free vulnerabilities were found in GIMP in the channel and layer properties parsing process when loading XCF files.
An attacker could create a specially crafted XCF file which could cause GIMP to crash. (CVE-2016-4994)
