    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.
