Ubuntu 12.04 LTS : icoutils vulnerabilities (USN-3226-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 97719

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

Jerzy Kramarz discovered that icoutils incorrectly handled memory when processing certain files. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted file, an attacker could cause icoutils 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.

Solution

Update the affected icoutils package.
