Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description :

tricking a user into opening a specially crafted tagged multimedia
file (such as .ogg or .mp3 music) with an application that uses
libtunepimp, this could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with
the user's privileges.

This particularly affects the KDE applications 'Amarok' and 'Juk'.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
