===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-934-1             April 29, 2010
netpbm-free vulnerability
CVE-2009-4274
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 9.04
Ubuntu 9.10

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

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

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
  netpbm                          2:10.0-11.1ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 9.04:
  netpbm                          2:10.0-12ubuntu0.9.04.1

Ubuntu 9.10:
  netpbm                          2:10.0-12ubuntu1.1

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

Details follow:

Marc Schoenefeld discovered a buffer overflow in Netpbm when loading
certain images. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a
specially crafted XPM image, a remote attacker could crash Netpbm. The
default compiler options for affected releases should reduce the
vulnerability to a denial of service.
