Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2014 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Simon Ruderich discovered that APT incorrectly handled repositories
that use InRelease files. The default Ubuntu repositories do not use
InRelease files, so this issue only affected third-party repositories.
If a remote attacker were able to perform a man-in-the-middle attack,
this flaw could potentially be used to install altered packages.
Update the affected apt package.
