Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2010-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2010-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
It was discovered that the Ubuntu image shipped on some Dell Latitude
2110 systems was accidentally configured to allow unauthenticated
package installations. A remote attacker intercepting network
communications or a malicious archive mirror server could exploit this
to trick the user into installing unsigned packages, resulting in
arbitrary code execution with root privileges.
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 base-files package.
