Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.63038
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-693-1 (LittleCMS)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-693-1 (LittleCMS)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to LittleCMS
announced via advisory USN-693-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 7.10
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10

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

Details follow:

It was discovered that certain gamma operations in lcms were not
correctly bounds-checked. If a user or automated system were tricked into
processing a malicious image, a remote attacker could crash applications
linked against liblcms1, leading to a denial of service, or possibly
execute arbitrary code with user privileges.

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

Ubuntu 7.10:
liblcms1 1.16-5ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
liblcms1 1.16-7ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 8.10:
liblcms1 1.16-10ubuntu0.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
