libjpeg-turbo, libjpeg6b vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 13.10
- Ubuntu 13.04
- Ubuntu 12.10
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

Summary:

libjpeg and libjpeg-turbo could be made to expose sensitive information.

Software Description:
- libjpeg-turbo: library for handling JPEG files
- libjpeg6b: library for handling JPEG files
