The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
Multiple insecure temporary file handling vulnerabilities were

overwrite arbitrary local files via symlinks. (CVE-2008-4192,
CVE-2008-4579, CVE-2008-4580, CVE-2008-6552)
It was discovered that CMAN did not properly handle malformed

CPU consumption and memory corruption) in a node if the attacker were
able to modify the cluster configuration for the node. (CVE-2008-6560).
Update the affected packages.
