Updated gimp package fixes security vulnerabilities

Publication date: 06 Dec 2013
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 3
CVE: CVE-2013-1913 , CVE-2013-1978


An integer overflow flaw and a heap-based buffer overflow were found in
the way GIMP loaded certain X Window System (XWD) image dump files. A
remote attacker could provide a specially crafted XWD image file that,
when processed, would cause the XWD plug-in to crash or, potentially,
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the GIMP
(CVE-2013-1913, CVE-2013-1978).
