More information:

Hanno Böck found several buffer overflows in GIMP, the GNU Image Manipulation Program, which could lead to application crash or other unspecified behaviour if a user opened untrusted input files.

For Debian 7 Wheezy, these problems have been fixed in version 2.8.2-2+deb7u3.

We recommend that you upgrade your gimp packages.
