Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2009-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Pavel Polischouk discovered that Pan incorrectly handled certain data
structures. If a user were tricked into viewing malicious nntp data, a
remote attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program.
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 pan package.
