Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.55685
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-210-1 (netpbm-free)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-210-1 (netpbm-free)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to netpbm-free
announced via advisory USN-210-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected: netpbm

A buffer overflow was found in the pnmtopng conversion program. By
tricking an user (or automated system) to process a specially crafted
PNM image with pnmtopng, this could be exploited to execute arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running pnmtopng.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2:10.0-5ubuntu0.2 (for Ubuntu 4.10), 2:10.0-8ubuntu0.2 (for
Ubuntu 5.04), or 2:10.0-8ubuntu1.1 (for Ubuntu 5.10). In general, a
standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
