Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2009-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2009-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
Alexandre Martani discovered that the APT daily cron script did not
check the return code of the date command. If a machine is configured
for automatic updates and is in a time zone where DST occurs at
midnight, under certain circumstances automatic updates might not be
applied and could become permanently disabled. (CVE-2009-1300)
Michael Casadevall discovered that APT did not properly verify
repositories signed with a revoked or expired key. If a repository
were signed with only an expired or revoked key and the signature was
otherwise valid, APT would consider the repository valid.
Update the affected packages.
