Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2010-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2010-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

USN-927-1 fixed vulnerabilities in nss in Ubuntu 9.10. This update
provides the corresponding updates for Ubuntu 8.04 LTS.

Marsh Ray and Steve Dispensa discovered a flaw in the TLS and SSLv3
protocols. If an attacker could perform a man in the middle attack at
the start of a TLS connection, the attacker could inject arbitrary
content at the beginning of the user's session. This update adds
support for the new new renegotiation extension and will use it when
the server supports it.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.8
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:P)
