 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:294

 Package : gimp
 Date    : December 18, 2013
 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in gimp:
 
 Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in file-xwd.c in the X Window
 Dump (XWD) plug-in in GIMP 2.8.2 allow remote attackers to cause a
 denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via
 a large (1) red, (2) green, or (3) blue color mask in an XWD file
 (CVE-2012-5576).
 
 Integer overflow in the load_image function in file-xwd.c in the X
 Window Dump (XWD) plug-in in GIMP 2.6.9 and earlier, when used with
 glib before 2.24, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
 (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a large color entries
 value in an X Window System (XWD) image dump (CVE-2013-1913).
 
 Heap-based buffer overflow in the read_xwd_cols function in file-xwd.c
 in the X Window Dump (XWD) plug-in in GIMP 2.6.9 and earlier allows
 remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly
 execute arbitrary code via an X Window System (XWD) image dump with
 more colors than color map entries (CVE-2013-1978).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
