Synopsis :

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

consistently verify local file paths. As a result, the source code for
mono web applications could be retrieved remotely, possibly leading to
further compromise via the application's source.

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.

Update the affected packages.
