Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
Two Denial of Service vulnerabilities have been discovered in the
getimagesize() function. getimagesize() uses format specific internal
functions php_handle_iff() and php_handle_jpeg() which get stuck in
infinite loops when certain (invalid) size parameters are read from
the image. In web applications that allow users to upload arbitrary
image files, a remote attacker could render the server unavailable by
uploading specially crafted images.
Update the affected packages.
