libkdcraw vulnerability

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

- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS


libKDcraw could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it opened
a specially crafted file.

Software Description:
- libkdcraw: RAW picture decoding library


It was discovered that libKDcraw incorrectly handled broken full-color
images. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a
specially crafted raw image, applications linked against libKDcraw could be
made to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute
arbitrary code.

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

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
  libkdcraw20                     4:4.8.5-0ubuntu0.2

the necessary changes.
