Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

Description :

USN-1463-2 fixed a bug in Unity 2D exposed by a recent Firefox update.
It was discovered that the issue was only partially fixed on Ubuntu
11.04. When Thunderbird was started from the launcher, Thunderbird was
still unable to obtain pointer grabs under certain conditions. This
update fixes the problem.

USN-1463-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Firefox. The Firefox update
exposed a bug in Unity 2D which resulted in Firefox being unable to
obtain pointer grabs in order to open popup menus. This update fixes
the problem.

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 unity-2d-launcher package.
