Description Jan Lieskovsky 2011-03-22 10:59:48 EDT
An integer overflow, leading to heap-based buffer overflow, was found
in The Gimp's Personal Computer eXchange (PCX) image file plug-in.
A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted PCX image file,
which once opened by a local, unsuspecting user would lead to denial
of service (GIMP PCX plug-in crash) or, potentially, arbitrary code
execution with the privileges of the user running Gimp.
