Description

Stefan Cornelius discovered that libgdiplus incorrectly handled certain image files. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted image file, an attacker could cause a denial of service 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.
