Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2012:1455
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2012:1455.

GEGL (Generic Graphics Library) is a graph-based image processing

An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was
found in the way the gegl utility processed .ppm (Portable Pixel Map) image
files. An attacker could create a specially-crafted .ppm file that, when
opened in gegl, would cause gegl to crash or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-4433)

This issue was discovered by Murray McAllister of the Red Hat Security
Response Team.

Users of gegl should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
