Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 7.04 / 7.10 : ltsp vulnerability (USN-610-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 32190


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


Christian Herzog discovered that it was possible to connect to any LTSP client's X session over the network. A remote attacker could eavesdrop on X events, read window contents, and record keystrokes, possibly gaining access to private information.

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.
