Description Josh Bressers 2006-07-10 19:17:49 UTC
gimp xcf buffer overflow

Henning Makholm discovered a buffer overflow bug in gimp's XCF loader.
It is possible to overflow a static buffer with arbitrary data, which
could likely result in arbitrary code execution.

The upstream bug contains the patch:
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=346742


This issue also affects RHEL3
This issue also affects RHEL2.1

Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2006-07-10 19:20:48 UTC
I'm not sure if this issue affects RHEL2.1 or not.  I can't find the source in
question, but I'm also not terribly familiar with the source of the XCF format.

Comment 2 Nils Philippsen 2006-07-12 12:51:14 UTC
gimp-1.2.x (what is in RHEL2.1 and RHEL3) doesn't seem to store or load vector
information in XCF files. I've contacted Henning Makholm (who provided the patch
upstream) about a testcase file.

Comment 3 Nils Philippsen 2006-07-12 12:52:09 UTC
gimp-1.2.x (what is in RHEL2.1 and RHEL3) doesn't seem to store or load vector
information in XCF files, so shouldn't be vulnerable. I've contacted Henning
Makholm (who provided the patch upstream) about a testcase file.

Comment 4 Nils Philippsen 2006-07-12 15:16:48 UTC
I've built gimp-2.0.5-6 for RHEL4 which includes the fix mentioned above.

Comment 9 Red Hat Bugzilla 2006-07-18 12:29:08 UTC
