MDKSA-2006:127: gimp

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gimp package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:127 (gimp).

A buffer overflow in the xcf_load_vector function in app/xcf/xcf-load.c
for gimp 2.2.x permits 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.
