Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2010-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2010-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Kevin Finisterre discovered that the TIFF library did not correctly
handle certain image structures. If a user or automated system were
tricked into opening a specially crafted TIFF image, a remote attacker
could execute arbitrary code with user privileges, or crash the
application, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-1411)

Dan Rosenberg and Sauli Pahlman discovered multiple flaws in the TIFF
library. If a user or automated system were into opening a specially
crafted TIFF image, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code
with user privileges, or crash the application, leading to a denial of
service. (Only Ubuntu 10.04 LTS was affected.) (CVE-2010-2065,
CVE-2010-2067).

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 packages.
