Published: 2012-07-30 12:21:54
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'gimp' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
gimp on CentOS 5

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Technical Details:
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 Linux Distribution Packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. The GIMP must be restarted for the update to take effect.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
