The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
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.
Update the affected liblcms-utils, liblcms1 and / or liblcms1-dev
Risk factor :
Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
