Ubuntu 4.10 / 5.04 : binutils regression (USN-136-2)

High Nessus Plugin ID 20528


The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.


It was discovered that the packages from USN-136-1 had a flawed patch with regressions that caused the ld linker to fail. The updated packages fix this.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

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 packages.
