Ubuntu 12.10 / 13.10 / 14.04 LTS : jbigkit vulnerability (USN-2190-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 73821
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionFlorian Weimer discovered that JBIG-KIT incorrectly handled certain malformed images. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted image, JBIG-KIT could be made to crash, 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 libjbig0 package.
