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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

It was discovered that ubuntu-release-upgrader would fail when a user
requested an upgrade to Ubuntu 13.04. This would prevent a user from
migrating easily to Ubuntu 13.04 before the Ubuntu 12.10 support
period ended.

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.
