Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-07-10 13:28:10 EDT
A heap-based buffer overflow flaw, leading to invalid free, was found in the way KISS CEL file format plug-in of Gimp, the GNU Image Manipulation Program, performed loading of certain palette files. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted KISS palette file that, when opened in Gimp would cause the CEL plug-in to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the gimp executable.
