A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

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

following package versions:

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Blender to effect
the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Radiance RGBE images. If a user were tricked into opening a .blend file
containing a specially crafted Radiance RGBE image, an attacker could execu=
te
arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2008-1102)

It was discovered that Blender did not properly sanitize the Python search
path. A local attacker could execute arbitrary code by inserting a speciall=
y
