==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 22.10
- Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in libXpm.

Software Description:
- libxpm: X11 pixmap library

Details:

Martin Ettl discovered that libXpm incorrectly handled certain XPM files.
If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted
XPM file, a remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause libXpm
to stop responding, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2022-44617)

Marco Ivaldi discovered that libXpm incorrectly handled certain XPM files.
If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a specially crafted
XPM file, a remote attacker could possibly use this issue to cause libXpm
to stop responding, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2022-46285)

Alan Coopersmith discovered that libXpm incorrectly handled calling
external helper binaries. If libXpm was being used by a setuid binary, a
local attacker could possibly use this issue to escalate privileges.
(CVE-2022-4883)

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