Description:Summary:

Vulnerability Insight:
The GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is an image composition and
editing program.

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the GIMP's Paint Shop Pro
(PSP) image file plug-in. An attacker could create a specially-crafted PSP
image file that, when opened, could cause the PSP plug-in to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
the GIMP. (CVE-2010-4543)

A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the GIMP's Lightning,
Sphere Designer, and Gfig image filters. An attacker could create a
specially-crafted Lightning, Sphere Designer, or Gfig filter configuration
file that, when opened, could cause the relevant plug-in to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
the GIMP. (CVE-2010-4540, CVE-2010-4541, CVE-2010-4542)

Users of the GIMP are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to correct these issues. The GIMP must be
restarted for the update to take effect.

Affected Software/OS:
gimp on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)
