[USN-3226-1] icoutils vulnerabilities

icoutils vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Summary:

icoutils could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it opened
a specially crafted file.

Software Description:
- icoutils: Create and extract MS Windows icons and cursors

Details:

Jerzy Kramarz discovered that icoutils incorrectly handled memory when
processing certain files. If a user or automated system were tricked into
opening a specially crafted file, an attacker could cause icoutils 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 12.04 LTS:
  icoutils                        0.29.1-2ubuntu0.2

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
