==========================================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-1695-1
January 17, 2013

rpm vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 11.10
- Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

Summary:

RPM could be made to crash or run programs if it opened a specially crafted
package file.

Software Description:
- rpm: package manager for RPM

Details:

It was discovered that RPM incorrectly handled certain package headers. If
a user or automated system were tricked into installing a specially crafted
RPM package, an attacker could cause RPM 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:
  rpm                             4.9.1.1-1ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 11.10:
  rpm                             4.9.0-7ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
  rpm                             4.7.2-1lubuntu0.1

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