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-380-1 fixed a vulnerability in Avahi. However, if used with
Network manager, that version occasionally failed to resolve .local
DNS names until Avahi got restarted. This update fixes the 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.
