High Nessus Plugin ID 28014
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionVladimir Nadvornik discovered that the fix for CVE-2006-5456, released in USN-372-1, did not correctly solve the original flaw in PALM image handling. By tricking a user into processing a specially crafted image with an application that uses imagemagick, an 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.
