Attackers could exploit this to cause a Denial of Service (Application crash) or to (potentially) execute arbitrary code in the context of the user running gimp. Reference(s): https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=776572 Thanks to Jan Lieskovsky and Florian Weimer for joining me in researching this flaw.
