Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.60879
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-604-1 (gnumeric)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-604-1 (gnumeric)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to gnumeric
announced via advisory USN-604-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 7.04
Ubuntu 7.10

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

Details follow:

Thilo Pfennig and Morten Welinder discovered that the XLS spreadsheet
handling code in Gnumeric did not correctly calculate needed memory sizes.
If a user or automated system were tricked into loading a specially crafted
XLS document, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with user
privileges.

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

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
gnumeric 1.6.3-0ubuntu4.1

Ubuntu 6.10:
gnumeric 1.7.0-1ubuntu4.1

Ubuntu 7.04:
gnumeric 1.7.8-0ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 7.10:
gnumeric 1.7.11-1ubuntu3.1

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