Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2008-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2008-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Jan Oravec discovered that Tomboy did not properly setup the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. A local attacker could exploit
this to execute arbitrary code as the user invoking the program.
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 tomboy package.
