Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2014 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
Florian Weimer discovered that UDisks incorrectly handled certain long
path names. A local attacker could use this issue to cause udisks to
crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary
code. The default compiler options for affected releases should reduce
the vulnerability to a denial of service.
Update the affected udisks and / or udisks2 packages.
Risk factor :
Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.9
CVSS Temporal Score : 6.0
