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


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

It was discovered that Blender did not correctly handle certain
malformed Radiance RGBE images. If a user were tricked into opening a
.blend file containing a specially crafted Radiance RGBE image, an
attacker could execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.
(CVE-2008-1102)

It was discovered that Blender did not properly sanitize the Python
search path. A local attacker could execute arbitrary code by
inserting a specially crafted Python file in the Blender working
directory. (CVE-2008-4863).

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 blender package.
