Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/gimp-2.10.36-i586-1_slack15.0.txz: Upgraded.
This release fixes security issues:
If a user loads a malicious DDS, PSD, or PSP file, this could result in a
program crash or possibly the execution of arbitrary code.
Please note that this package also requires the updated gegl package.
