Description Jan Lieskovsky 2012-05-23 13:30:45 EDT
A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way Script-Fu plug-in of Gimp, a GNU Image Manipulation Program, processed certain arguments that have been provided to the TinyScheme console. A remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted Script-Fu script, which once processed by the plug-ins/script-fu executable could lead to script-fu executable crash, or, potentially arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running Gimp.
