Synopsis

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

Description

Kevin Finisterre discovered that the TIFF library did not correctly handle certain image structures. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted TIFF image, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with user privileges, or crash the application, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-1411)

Dan Rosenberg and Sauli Pahlman discovered multiple flaws in the TIFF library. If a user or automated system were into opening a specially crafted TIFF image, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with user privileges, or crash the application, leading to a denial of service. (Only Ubuntu 10.04 LTS was affected.) (CVE-2010-2065, CVE-2010-2067).

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 packages.
