Description Josh Bressers 2005-03-09 16:11:26 UTC
gifload in GIMP 2.0.5, 2.2.3, and possibly 2.2.4 allows remote attackers or
local users to cause a denial of service (application crash) via the image
descriptor (1) height or (2) width fields set to zero.

Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2005-03-09 16:12:47 UTC
This issue should also affect RHEL3 and RHEL2.1.

Comment 3 Nils Philippsen 2005-03-09 17:01:32 UTC
Hmm, with gimp-2.2.4, this crashes the GIF _plugin_ in an assertion. I don't see
how it should affect the main application. Nevertheless I'll backport the fix
which is in upstream CVS for RHEL/Fedora, because upstream won't bother to
backport it themselves (see their bugzilla).

Comment 7 Mark J. Cox 2005-03-21 12:02:53 UTC
Crashing a client application on load of a malicious image is not a security
issue -- don't load the bad image.  Closing.
