Posted on: 03/22/2007 03:25 AM

A new file vulnerability update is available for Ubuntu Linux. Here the announcement:

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-439-1 March 21, 2007
file vulnerability
CVE-2007-1536
==========================
==========================
=========

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.10
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

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

Ubuntu 5.10:
libmagic1 4.12-1ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
libmagic1 4.16-0ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 6.10:
libmagic1 4.17-2ubuntu1.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

Jean-Sebastien Guay-Leroux discovered that "file" did not correctly
check the size of allocated heap memory. If a user were tricked into
examining a specially crafted file with the "file" utility, a remote
attacker could execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
