The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Hanno Bock discovered that Libksba incorrectly handled certain S/MIME

to cause Libksba to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or
possibly execute arbitrary code.
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 libksba8 package.
