Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

USN-346-1 provided an updated Linux kernel to fix several security
vulnerabilities. Unfortunately the update broke the binary 'nvidia'
driver from linux-restricted-modules. This update corrects this
problem. We apologize for the inconvenience.

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.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.2
