Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 11.10 / 12.04 LTS : qt4-x11 vulnerability (USN-1628-1)

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 :

Juliano Rizzo and Thai Duong discovered a flaw in the Transport Layer
Security (TLS) protocol when it is used with data compression. If an
attacker were able to perform a man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw
could be exploited to view sensitive information. This update disables
TLS data compression in Qt by default.

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 libqt4-network package.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.6
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:H/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)
CVSS Temporal Score : 2.3
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : true
