Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.55921
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-218-1 (netpbm-free)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-218-1 (netpbm-free)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to netpbm-free
announced via advisory USN-218-1.

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

Two buffer overflows were discovered in the 'pnmtopng' tool, which
were triggered by processing an image with exactly 256 colors when
using the -alpha option (CVE-2005-3662) or by processing a text file
with very long lines when using the -text option (CVE-2005-3632).

A remote attacker could exploit these to execute arbitrary code by
tricking an user or an automated system into processing a specially
crafted PNM file with pnmtopng.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2:10.0-5ubuntu0.3 (for Ubuntu 4.10), 2:10.0-8ubuntu0.3 (for
Ubuntu 5.04), or 2:10.0-8ubuntu1.2 (for Ubuntu 5.10). In general, a
standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
