 Problem Description:

 Updated gegl packages fix security vulnerability:
 
 An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was
 found in the way the gegl utility processed .ppm (Portable Pixel Map)
 image files. An attacker could create a specially-crafted .ppm file
 that, when opened in gegl, would cause gegl to crash or, potentially,
 execute arbitrary code (CVE-2012-4433).
