Description Ludwig Nussel 2012-06-22 13:43:23 UTC
Your friendly security team received the following report via vendor-sec.
Please respond ASAP.
This issue is not public yet, please keep any information about it inside SUSE.
Note that build.opensuse.org *cannot* be used to prepare embargoed updates.


Specially crafted "fit" files with a malformed 'XTENSION' can crash GIMP.

Comment 3 Ludwig Nussel 2012-06-22 13:45:23 UTC
simply crash on NULL is not really a security issue in the context of GIMP. Fix for Factory sufficient when public.

Comment 7 Vincent Untz 2012-06-25 07:25:35 UTC
So should we just go ahead and submit the fix, or do we still wait to wait until Friday?
Comment 8 Ludwig Nussel 2012-06-25 07:38:02 UTC
doesn't make sense to wait with a public bug report of course but the reporter hasn't answered the question yet. It's just a NULL deref so no risk in waiting though.
Comment 9 Vincent Untz 2012-06-25 09:10:28 UTC
Since I'm unsure I'll have time to deal with it later this week, I went ahead and submitted to G:A: sr#125930.
Comment 10 Vincent Untz 2012-06-25 09:29:58 UTC

Hrm, I guess there's no need to reassign to security-team since this is Factory-only as per comment 3, so closing.
