Synopsis :

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

Description :

It was discovered that a double free() could occur when the intent
handling code in the Little CMS library detected an error. An attacker
could use this to specially craft a file that caused an application
using the Little CMS library to crash 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.
