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.
Javier Fernï¿½ez-Sanguino Peï¿½oticed that the auxillary scripts
'tcltags' and 'vimspell.sh' created temporary files in an insecure
manner. This could allow a symbolic link attack to create or overwrite
arbitrary files with the privileges of the user invoking the script
(either by calling it directly or by execution through vim).
Update the affected packages.
