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.
Several vulnerabilities have been found in the XPM image decoding
functions of the LessTif library. If an attacker tricked a user into
loading a malicious XPM image with an application that uses LessTif,
he could exploit this to execute arbitrary code in the context of the
user opening the image.
Ubuntu does not contain any server applications using LessTif, so
there is no possibility of privilege escalation.
Update the affected packages.
