Ubuntu 12.04 LTS / 12.10 / 13.04 : libraw vulnerability (USN-1884-1)

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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

It was discovered that LibRaw incorrectly handled broken full-color
images. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a
specially crafted raw image, applications linked against LibRaw could
be made to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly
execute arbitrary code.

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 libraw5 package.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.5
