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 buffer overflows were discovered in the 'pnmtopng' tool, which
were triggered by processing an image with exactly 256 colors when
using the -alpha option (CVE-2005-3662) or by processing a text file
with very long lines when using the -text option (CVE-2005-3632).
A remote attacker could exploit these to execute arbitrary code by
tricking an user or an automated system into processing a specially
crafted PNM file with pnmtopng.
Update the affected packages.
