Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.69589
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-1109-1 (gimp)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-1109-1 (gimp)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to gimp
announced via advisory USN-1109-1.

Details follow:

It was discovered that GIMP incorrectly handled malformed data in certain
plugin configuration files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially
crafted plugin configuration file, an attacker could cause GIMP to crash,
or possibly execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. The default
compiler options for affected releases should reduce the vulnerability to a
denial of service. (CVE-2010-4540, CVE-2010-4541, CVE-2010-4542)

It was discovered that GIMP incorrectly handled malformed PSP image files.
If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted PSP image file, an
attacker could cause GIMP to crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code with
the user's privileges. (CVE-2010-4543)

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
gimp 2.4.5-1ubuntu2.3

Ubuntu 9.10:
gimp 2.6.7-1ubuntu1.2

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
gimp 2.6.8-2ubuntu1.2

Ubuntu 10.10:
gimp 2.6.10-1ubuntu3.2

After a standard system update you need to restart GIMP to make all the
necessary changes.
