Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:127
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : gimp
Date : July 18, 2006
Affected: 2006.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A buffer overflow in the xcf_load_vector function in app/xcf/xcf-load.c
for gimp 2.2.x allows user-complicit attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via an XCF file
with a large num_axes value in the VECTORS property.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
