Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 6.10 / 7.04 / 7.10 : libcdio vulnerability (USN-580-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 31165


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


Devon Miller discovered that the iso-info and cd-info tools did not properly perform bounds checking. If a user were tricked into using these tools with a crafted iso image, an attacker could cause a denial of service (core dump) and 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.


Update the affected packages.
