Dan Rosenberg discovered that dvipng incorrectly handled certain malformed dvi files. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted dvi file, an attacker could cause a denial of service via application crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program.

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.
