Ubuntu 12.04 LTS / 14.04 LTS / 14.10 / 15.04 : libwmf vulnerabilities (USN-2670-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2015-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Fernando Munoz and Stefan Cornelius discovered that libwmf
incorrectly handled certain malformed images. If a user or automated
system were tricked into opening a crafted image file, an attacker
could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with
privileges of the user invoking the program.

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 libwmf0.2-7 package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
