Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures assigned an identifier CVE-2009-0581 to
this vulnerability:

Memory leak in LittleCMS (aka lcms or liblcms) before 1.18beta2, as
used in Firefox 3.1beta, OpenJDK, and GIMP, allows context-dependent
attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and
application crash) via a crafted image file.
