Ubuntu 6.06 LTS : lcms vulnerability (USN-652-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2008-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Chris Evans discovered that certain ICC operations in lcms were not
correctly bounds-checked. If a user or automated system were tricked
into processing an image with malicious ICC tags, a remote attacker
could crash applications linked against liblcms1, leading to a denial
of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code with user 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 liblcms-utils, liblcms1 and / or liblcms1-dev
packages.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
