Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 6.10 / 7.04 : libvorbis vulnerabilities (USN-498-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

Description :

David Thiel discovered that libvorbis did not correctly verify the
size of certain headers, and did not correctly clean up a broken
stream. If a user were tricked into processing a specially crafted
Vorbis stream, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with the
user's privileges.

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.
