Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 12.04 LTS / 12.10 / 13.04 / 13.10 : libjpeg-turbo, libjpeg6b vulnerabilities (USN-2060-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 71563


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


Michal Zalewski discovered that libjpeg and libjpeg-turbo incorrectly handled certain memory operations. An attacker could use this issue with a specially crafted JPEG file to possibly expose sensitive information.

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 libjpeg-turbo8, libjpeg62 and / or libturbojpeg packages.
