Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-11-22 09:58:18 EST
A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way GIMP, the GNU Image Manipulation Program, performed loading of certain X Window System (XWD) image dumps. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted XWD format image file that, when processed, would lead to gimp XWD plug-in crash or, potentially, arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running the gimp executable.
