Slackware Security Announcement 2009-345-01: gimp

[slackware-security] gimp (SSA:2009-345-01)

 

New gimp packages are available for Slackware 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, and -current to

fix security issues.

 

More details about these issues may be found in the Common

Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

Here are the details from the Slackware 13.0 ChangeLog:

+--------------------------+

patches/packages/gimp-2.6.8-i486-1_slack13.0.txz: Upgraded.

This fixes integer overflows in the image handling plugins that could

lead to the execution of arbitrary code or an application crash if a

malicious image is loaded.

Where to find the new packages:

+-----------------------------+

 

HINT: Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?

Give slackware.osuosl.org a try. This is another primary FTP site

for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading

directly from ftp.slackware.com.

 

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab

(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting

to the Slackware project! :-)

 

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for

additional mirror sites near you.
