Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

Joxean Koret discovered that the SVG import plugin did not properly
sanitise data read from an SVG file. By tricking an user into opening
a specially crafted SVG file, an attacker could exploit this to
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
