CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

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

Technical Details:
Several vulnerabilities have been identified in GIMP, the GNU Image Manipulation Program. CVE-2010-4540 Stack-based buffer overflow in the load_preset_response function in plug-ins/lighting/lighting-ui.c in the LIGHTING EFFECTS > LIGHT plugin allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a long Position field in a plugin configuration file. CVE-2010-4541 Stack-based buffer overflow in the loadit function in plug-ins/common/sphere-designer.c in the SPHERE DESIGNER plugin allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a long Number of lights field in a plugin configuration file. CVE-2010-4542 Stack-based buffer overflow in the gfig_read_parameter_gimp_rgb function in the GFIG plugin allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a long Foreground field in a plugin configuration file. CVE-2010-4543 Heap-based buffer overflow in the read_channel_data function in file-psp.c in the Paint Shop Pro (PSP) plugin allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a PSP_COMP_RLE (aka RLE compression) image file that begins a long run count at the end of the image. CVE-2011-1782 The correction for CVE-2010-4543 was incomplete. CVE-2011-2896 The LZW decompressor in the LZWReadByte function in plug-ins/common/file-gif-load.c does not properly handle code words that are absent from the decompression table when encountered, which allows remote attackers to trigger an infinite loop or a heap-based buffer overflow, and possibly execute arbitrary code, via a crafted compressed stream. For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 2.6.10-1+squeeze3. For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 2.6.11-5.

Recommendations:
We recommend that you upgrade your gimp Linux Distribution Packages.

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update to gimp announced via advisory DSA 2426-1.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, you can scan concurrently as many assets as you want. Please note that you must be aware of the hardware requeriments of the platform to ensure a good performance.

No, you can add as many assest as you want. It doesn't matters if you have millions of assets, we won't charge you for that.

No. The software is completely free. We have no intention to charge you to use the software, in fact - it completely goes against our beliefs and business model.

A vulnerability is defined in the ISO 27002 standard as “A weakness of an asset or group of assets that can be exploited by one or more threats” (International Organization for Standardization, 2005)

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".
