Background

GIMP is the GNU Image Manipulation Program.

Description

Marsu discovered that the “set_color_table()” function in the SUNRAS plugin is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow.

Impact

An attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted .RAS file, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running GIMP.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All GIMP users should upgrade to the latest version:

 # emerge --sync
 # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-gfx/gimp-2.2.14"
