Low Nessus Plugin ID 20719
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionA race condition was discovered in the handling of 'Set-Cookie' headers. If the obsolete Netscape recommendation was used for handling cookies in the cache, it was possible for an attacker to steal the cookies of other users.
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 packages.
