Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
USN-148-1 and USN-151-1 fixed two security flaws in zlib, which could
be exploited to cause Denial of Service attacks or even arbitrary code
execution with malicious data streams.
Since aide is statically linked against the zlib library, it is also
affected by these issues. The updated packagages have been rebuilt
against the fixed zlib.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
Update the affected aide package.
Risk factor :
High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
