Ubuntu 12.04 LTS / 12.10 / 13.04 : libraw vulnerability (USN-1884-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 66922
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionIt was discovered that LibRaw incorrectly handled broken full-color images. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted raw image, applications linked against LibRaw could be made to crash, resulting in a denial of service, 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected libraw5 package.
