Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
A buffer overflow was discovered in the 'htpasswd' utility. This could
be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
invoking htpasswd. This is only a security vulnerability if you have a
website that offers a public interface to htpasswd without checking
the input beforehand
however, this is very unusual.
Update the affected packages.
