Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2007-2016 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 :

The SSLv2 protocol support in the NSS library did not sufficiently
check the validity of public keys presented with a SSL certificate. A
malicious SSL website using SSLv2 could potentially exploit this to
execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2007-0008)

The SSLv2 protocol support in the NSS library did not sufficiently
verify the validity of client master keys presented in an SSL client
certificate. A remote attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary
code in a server application that uses the NSS library.
(CVE-2007-0009)

Various flaws have been reported that could allow an attacker to
execute arbitrary code with user privileges by tricking the user into
opening a malicious web page. (CVE-2007-0775, CVE-2007-0776,
CVE-2007-0777).

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.
