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

Details

processing certain files. If a user or automated system were tricked into
opening a specially crafted file, an attacker could cause icoutils 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 version:

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
icoutils

0.29.1-2ubuntu0.2
