    Several vulnerabilities have been identified in GIMP, the GNU Image
    Manipulation Program.
    
    CVE-2010-4540
    	Stack-based buffer overflow in the load_preset_response
    	function in plug-ins/lighting/lighting-ui.c in the "LIGHTING
    	EFFECTS > LIGHT" plugin allows user-assisted remote attackers
    	to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly
    	execute arbitrary code via a long Position field in a plugin
    	configuration file.
    
    CVE-2010-4541
    	Stack-based buffer overflow in the loadit function in
    	plug-ins/common/sphere-designer.c in the SPHERE DESIGNER
    	plugin allows user-assisted remote attackers to cause a denial
    	of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary
    	code via a long "Number of lights" field in a plugin
    	configuration file.
    
    CVE-2010-4542
    	Stack-based buffer overflow in the gfig_read_parameter_gimp_rgb
    	function in in the GFIG plugin allows user-assisted remote
    	attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or
    	possibly execute arbitrary code via a long Foreground field in a
    	plugin configuration file.
    
    CVE-2010-4543
    	Heap-based buffer overflow in the read_channel_data function in
    	file-psp.c in the Paint Shop Pro (PSP) plugin allows remote
    	attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or
    	possibly execute arbitrary code via a PSP_COMP_RLE (aka RLE
    	compression) image file that begins a long run count at the end
    	of the image.
    
    CVE-2011-1782
    	The correction for CVE-2010-4543 was incomplete.
    
    CVE-2011-2896
    	The LZW decompressor in the LZWReadByte function in
    	plug-ins/common/file-gif-load.c does not properly handle code
    	words that are absent from the decompression table when
    	encountered, which allows remote attackers to trigger an
    	infinite loop or a heap-based buffer overflow, and possibly
    	execute arbitrary code, via a crafted compressed stream.
    
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2.6.10-1+squeeze3.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
    (sid), these problems have been fixed in version 2.6.11-5.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gimp packages.
