libsdl1.2 vulnerabilities

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

- Ubuntu 14.04 ESM
- Ubuntu 12.04 ESM


Several security issues were fixed in SDL.

Software Description:
- libsdl1.2: Simple DirectMedia Layer debug files


USN-4156-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in SDL. This update provides
the corresponding update for Ubuntu 12.04 ESM and Ubuntu 14.04 ESM.

Original advisory details:

 It was discovered that SDL incorrectly handled certain images. If a user
 were tricked into opening a crafted image file, a remote attacker could
 use this issue to cause SDL to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or
 possibly execute arbitary code.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 14.04 ESM:
  libsdl1.2debian                 1.2.15-8ubuntu1.1+esm1

Ubuntu 12.04 ESM:
  libsdl1.2debian                 1.2.14-6.4ubuntu3.2

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