Ubuntu 5.10 : blender vulnerability (USN-238-2)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Damian Put discovered that Blender did not properly validate a
'length' value in .blend files. Negative values led to an
insufficiently sized memory allocation. By tricking a user into
opening a specially crafted .blend file, this could be exploited to
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the Blender user.

Solution :

Update the affected blender package.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
