Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2010-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2010-2013 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.
Update the affected base-files package.
