Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.59194
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-504-1 (emacs21)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-504-1 (emacs21)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to emacs21
announced via advisory USN-504-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 7.04

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Details follow:

Hendrik Tews discovered that emacs21 did not correctly handle certain
GIF images. By tricking a user into opening a specially crafted GIF,
a remote attacker could cause emacs21 to crash, resulting in a denial
of service.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
emacs21 21.4a-3ubuntu2.1
emacs21-nox 21.4a-3ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 6.10:
emacs21 21.4a-6ubuntu2.1
emacs21-nox 21.4a-6ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 7.04:
emacs21 21.4a+1-2ubuntu1.1
emacs21-nox 21.4a+1-2ubuntu1.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart emacs to effect the
necessary changes.
