libraw vulnerabilities

Packages

  • 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, a remote attacker could cause applications linked against LibRaw
to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
code

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 17.10
Ubuntu 17.04
Ubuntu 16.04
Ubuntu 14.04

After a standard system update you need to restart your session to make
all the necessary changes.
