Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 10.10 : ifupdown update (USN-1037-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Under certain circumstances, the DHCP client could start before its
AppArmor profile was loaded and therefore run unconfined. This update
ensures the AppArmor profile is loaded before DHCP client starts.

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 ifupdown package.

Risk factor :
