Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

Description :

M. Joonas Pihlaja discovered that imlib2 did not sufficiently verify
the validity of ARGB, JPG, LBM, PNG, PNM, TGA, and TIFF images. If a
user were tricked into viewing or processing a specially crafted image
with an application that uses imlib2, the flaws could be exploited to
execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.

Solution :

Update the affected libimlib2 and / or libimlib2-dev packages.
