Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for gegl RHSA-2012:1455-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'gegl'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'gegl'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
GEGL (Generic Graphics Library) is a graph-based image processing
framework.

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.

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

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
