MDKSA-2006:127: gimp Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the gimp package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:127 (gimp).
A buffer overflow in the xcf_load_vector function in app/xcf/xcf-load.c
for gimp 2.2.x allows user-complicit attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via an XCF file
with a large num_axes value in the VECTORS property.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
