Description

It was discovered that Little CMS did not properly verify certain memory allocations. If a user or automated system using Little CMS were tricked into opening a specially crafted file, an attacker could cause Little CMS to crash.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
