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 :

Florian Weimer discovered that the Module::Signature perl module
incorrectly loaded unknown ciphers from relative directories. An
attacker could possibly use this flaw to execute arbitrary code when a
signature is verified.

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 libmodule-signature-perl package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.4
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 3.8
