Description

It was discovered that GIMP incorrectly handled malformed data in certain plugin configuration files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted plugin configuration file, an attacker could cause GIMP to crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code with the user’s privileges. The default compiler options for affected releases should reduce the vulnerability to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-4540, CVE-2010-4541, CVE-2010-4542)
