Ubuntu 5.10 / 6.06 LTS / 6.10 : imlib2 vulnerabilities (USN-376-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 27957

Synopsis

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

Description

M. Joonas Pihlaja discovered that imlib2 did not sufficiently verify the validity of ARGB, JPG, LBM, PNG, PNM, TGA, and TIFF images. If a user were tricked into viewing or processing a specially crafted image with an application that uses imlib2, the flaws could be exploited to 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 libimlib2 and / or libimlib2-dev packages.
