Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2009-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2009-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
It was discovered that CUPS did not properly check the height of TIFF
images. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a
crafted TIFF image file, a remote attacker could cause a denial of
service or possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges. In
Ubuntu 7.10, 8.04 LTS, and 8.10, attackers would be isolated by the
AppArmor CUPS profile.
Update the affected packages.
