Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

USN-1465-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Ubuntu One Client. The update
failed to install on certain Ubuntu 10.04 LTS systems that had a
legacy Python 2.5 package installed. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

It was discovered that the Ubuntu One Client incorrectly validated
server certificates when using HTTPS connections. If a remote attacker
were able to perform a man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could be
exploited to alter or compromise confidential information.

Solution :

Update the affected python-ubuntuone-client package.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
