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

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

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 blender package.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
