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.
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 lsb-rpm is statically linked against the zlib library, it is
also affected by these issues. The updated packagages have been
rebuilt against the fixed zlib.
Please note that lsb-rpm is not officially supported (it is in the
'universe' component of the archive).
Update the affected packages.
Risk factor :
High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
