Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2013-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2013-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

It was discovered that OpenJDK did not properly validate certain types
of images. A remote attacker could exploit this to cause OpenJDK to
crash. (CVE-2013-0809)

It was discovered that OpenJDK did not properly check return values
when performing color conversion for images. If a user were tricked
into opening a crafted image with OpenJDK, such as with the Java
plugin, a remote attacker could cause OpenJDK to crash or execute
arbitrary code outside of the Java sandbox with the privileges of the
user invoking the program. (CVE-2013-1493).

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.

Update the affected packages.
