Insight

Insight

The GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is an image composition and editing program. An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in the GIMP's Microsoft Windows Bitmap (BMP) and Personal Computer eXchange (PCX) image file plug-ins. An attacker could create a specially-crafted BMP or PCX image file that, when opened, could cause the relevant plug-in to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the GIMP. (CVE-2009-1570, CVE-2011-1178) A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the GIMP's Paint Shop Pro (PSP) image file plug-in. An attacker could create a specially-crafted PSP image file that, when opened, could cause the PSP plug-in to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the GIMP. (CVE-2010-4543) A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the GIMP's Lightning, Sphere Designer, and Gfig image filters. An attacker could create a specially-crafted Lightning, Sphere Designer, or Gfig filter configuration file that, when opened, could cause the relevant plug-in to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the GIMP. (CVE-2010-4540, CVE-2010-4541, CVE-2010-4542) Red Hat would like to thank Stefan Cornelius of Secunia Research for responsibly reporting the CVE-2009-1570 flaw. Users of the GIMP are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The GIMP must be restarted for the update to take effect.
