CVE-2012-2763 gimp: Heap-based buffer overflow in the script-fu console by sending overly long arguments to script-fu server
Last modified: 2016-03-04 06:02:43 EST
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.
