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

- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Summary:

LibRaw could be made to crash if it opened a specially crafted file.

Software Description:
- libraw: raw image decoder library

Details:

It was discovered that LibRaw incorrectly handled photo files. If a user or
automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted photo
file, applications linked against LibRaw could be made to crash, resulting
in a denial of service. (CVE-2013-1438, CVE-2013-1439)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
  libraw5                         0.14.4-0ubuntu2.2
