Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Hans Spaans discovered that the Context plugin in Rhythmbox created a
temporary directory in an insecure manner. A local attacker could
exploit this to execute arbitrary code as the user invoking the
program. The Context plugin is disabled by default in Ubuntu.
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.
Update the affected rhythmbox-plugins package.
