Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3694-1
June 28, 2018

nasm vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

NASM could be made to crash or run programs if it opened a specially
crafted file.

Software Description:
- - nasm: General-purpose x86 assembler

Details:

It was discovered that NASM incorrectly handled certain source files. If a
user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted
source file, a remote attacker could use these issues to cause NASM to
crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
code.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
  nasm                            2.10.09-1ubuntu0.1

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