GIMP is prone to an overflow condition. The 'read_channel_data()' function in 'plug-ins/common/file-psp.c' fails to properly sanitize user-supplied input resulting in a heap-based buffer overflow. With a specially crafted PSP file, a context-dependent attacker can potentially execute arbitrary code.
