Ubuntu 12.04 LTS : djvulibre vulnerability (USN-2056-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 71493
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionIt was discovered that DjVuLibre incorrectly handled certain memory operations. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted DjVu file, applications 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 libdjvulibre21 package.
