The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
Updated lcms packages that resolve several security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
Little Color Management System (LittleCMS, or simply 'lcms') is a
small-footprint, speed-optimized open source color management engine.
Multiple insufficient input validation flaws were discovered in
LittleCMS. An attacker could use these flaws to create a specially
crafted image file which could cause an application using LittleCMS to
crash, or, possibly, execute arbitrary code when opened.
Users of lcms should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues. All running applications
using lcms library must be restarted for the update to take effect.
