New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

Marsh Ray and Steve Dispensa discovered a flaw in the TLS and SSLv3 protocols. If an attacker could perform a man in the middle attack at the start of a TLS connection, the attacker could inject arbitrary content at the beginning of the user's session. (CVE-2009-3555)

It was discovered that Loader-constraint table, Policy/PolicyFile, Inflater/Deflater, drag/drop access, and deserialization did not correctly handle certain sensitive objects. If a user were tricked into running a specially crafted applet, private information could be leaked to a remote attacker, leading to a loss of privacy.
(CVE-2010-0082, CVE-2010-0084, CVE-2010-0085, CVE-2010-0088, CVE-2010-0091, CVE-2010-0094)

It was discovered that AtomicReferenceArray, System.arraycopy, InetAddress, and HashAttributeSet did not correctly handle certain situations. If a remote attacker could trigger specific error conditions, a Java application could crash, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2010-0092, CVE-2010-0093, CVE-2010-0095, CVE-2010-0845)

It was discovered that Pack200, CMM readMabCurveData, ImagingLib, and the AWT library did not correctly check buffer lengths. If a user or automated system were tricked into handling specially crafted JAR files or images, a remote attacker could crash the Java application or possibly gain user privileges (CVE-2010-0837, CVE-2010-0838, CVE-2010-0847, CVE-2010-0848).

It was discovered that applets did not correctly handle certain trust chains. If a user were tricked into running a specially crafted applet, a remote attacker could possibly run untrusted code with user privileges. (CVE-2010-0840).

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.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
