Affected versions

Problem description

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