Ubuntu 11.10 / 12.04 LTS : AppArmor update (USN-1676-1)

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 :

Dan Rosenberg discovered that the example AppArmor profile for
chromium-browser could be escaped by calling xdg-settings with a
crafted environment.

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 apparmor-profiles package.

Risk factor :
