Ubuntu 9.10 / 10.04 LTS / 10.10 : italc vulnerability (USN-1061-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2013-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Stephane Graber discovered that the iTALC private keys shipped with
the Edubuntu Live DVD were not correctly regenerated once Edubuntu was
installed. If an iTALC client was installed with the vulnerable keys,
a remote attacker could gain control of the system. Only systems using
keys from the Edubuntu Live DVD were affected.

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 italc-client package.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 9.3
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
