Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.68221
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-936-1 (dvipng)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-936-1 (dvipng)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to dvipng
announced via advisory USN-936-1.

Details follow:

Dan Rosenberg discovered that dvipng incorrectly handled certain malformed
dvi files. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a
specially crafted dvi file, an attacker could cause a denial of service via
application crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges
of the user invoking the program.

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

Ubuntu 9.04:
dvipng 1.11-1ubuntu0.9.04.1

Ubuntu 9.10:
dvipng 1.11-1ubuntu0.9.10.1

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
dvipng 1.12-3ubuntu0.1

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
