Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2017 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Lars Krapf and Pierre Ernst discovered that Apache Batik incorrectly
handled XML external entities. A remote attacker could possibly use
this issue to obtain sensitive files from the filesystem, or cause a
denial of service.
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.
Update the affected libbatik-java package.
