Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 10.10 / 11.04 / 11.10 : ca-certificates-java vulnerability (USN-1197-7)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

USN-1197-5 addressed an issue in ca-certificates pertaining to the
Dutch Certificate Authority DigiNotar mis-issuing fraudulent
certificates. This update provides the corresponding update for
ca-certificates-java.

It was discovered that Dutch Certificate Authority DigiNotar had
mis-issued multiple fraudulent certificates. These certificates could
allow an attacker to perform a 'man in the middle' (MITM) attack which
would make the user believe their connection is secure, but is
actually being monitored.

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.

Solution :

Update the affected ca-certificates-java package.

Risk factor :

High
