Vulnerability Assessment Details
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
These remote packages are missing security patches :
Several vulnerabilities have been found in the XPM image decoding
functions of the LessTif library. If a possible hacker tricked a user into
loading a malicious XPM image with an application that uses LessTif,
he could exploit this to execute arbitrary code in the context of the
user opening the image.
Ubuntu does not contain any server applications using LessTif, so
there is no possibility of privilege escalation.
Upgrade to :
- lesstif-bin-0.93.94-4ubuntu1.3 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- lesstif-dev-0.93.94-4ubuntu1.3 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- lesstif-doc-0.93.94-4ubuntu1.3 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- lesstif1-0.93.94-4ubuntu1.3 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- lesstif2-0.93.94-4ubuntu1.3 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- lesstif2-dev-0.93.94-4ubuntu1.3 (Ubuntu 4.10)
