libjpeg-turbo vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 12.04 ESM

Summary:

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

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

Details:

USN-3706-1 fixed a vulnerability in libjpeg-turbo. This update provides
the corresponding update for Ubuntu 12.04 ESM.

Original advisory details:

 It was discovered that libjpeg-turbo incorrectly handled certain
 malformed JPEG images. If a user or automated system were tricked into
 opening a specially crafted JPEG image, a remote attacker could cause
 libjpeg-turbo 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 ESM:
  libjpeg-turbo8                  1.1.90+svn733-0ubuntu4.5

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