Ubuntu 11.10 : ca-certificates-java regression (USN-1197-8)

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-1197-7 fixed a vulnerability in ca-certificates-java. The new
package broke upgrades from Ubuntu 11.04 to Ubuntu 11.10. This update
fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

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
