Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2004-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Recently, Trustix Secure Linux discovered some vulnerabilities in the
gs-common package. The utilities 'pv.sh' and 'ps2epsi' created
temporary files in an insecure way, which allowed a symlink attack to
create or overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user
invoking the program.
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 gs-common package.
