Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Sean Larsson discovered multiple integer overflows in Gimp. By
tricking a user into opening a specially crafted DICOM, PNM, PSD, PSP,
RAS, XBM, or XWD image, a remote attacker could exploit this to
execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.

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 packages.
