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-964-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Likewise Open. The upstream fixes
were incomplete, which caused problems running certain services. This
update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Matt Weatherford discovered that Likewise Open did not correctly check
password expiration for the local-provider account. A local attacker
could exploit this to log into a system they would otherwise not have
access to.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High
