The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
Recently, Trustix Secure Linux discovered some vulnerabilities in the
libc6 package. The utilities 'catchsegv' and 'glibcbug' 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.
Update the affected packages.
