Bugzilla: 838941: CVE-2012-3402 gimp (PSD plug-in): Heap-buffer overflow by decoding certain PSD headers


The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

Integer overflow in plug-ins/common/psd.c in the Adobe Photoshop PSD plugin in GIMP 2.2.13 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted channels header value in a PSD image file, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow, a different vulnerability than CVE-2009-3909.
