    Package        : gimp
    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-4994
    Debian Bug     : 828179
    
    Shmuel H discovered that GIMP, the GNU Image Manipulation Program, is
    prone to a use-after-free vulnerability in the channel and layer
    properties parsing process when loading a XCF file. An attacker can take
    advantage of this flaw to potentially execute arbitrary code with the
    privileges of the user running GIMP if a specially crafted XCF file is
    processed.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.8.14-1+deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gimp packages.
