The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
Abhishek Arya discovered that NSPR incorrectly handled certain console
functions. A remote attacker could use this issue to cause NSPR 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 libnspr4 and / or libnspr4-0d packages.
