Description

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

Multiple integer overflow and input validation flaws were found in The GIMP's image loaders. An attacker could create a carefully crafted image file that could cause The GIMP to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code if the file was opened by a victim. (CVE-2006-4519, CVE-2007-2949, CVE-2007-3741)

Users of The GIMP should update to these erratum packages, which contain a backported fix to correct these issues.
