Ubuntu 18.04 LTS : lxc vulnerability (USN-3730-1)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 111577
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionMatthias Gerstner discovered that LXC incorrectly handled the
lxc-user-nic utility. A local attacker could possibly use this issue
to open arbitrary files.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected lxc package.
