high Nessus Plugin ID 51115

Language:

Synopsis

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

Description

Jesse Ruderman, Andreas Gal, Nils, Brian Hackett, and Igor Bukanov discovered several memory issues in the browser engine. An attacker could exploit these to crash THunderbird or possibly run arbitrary code as the user invoking the program. (CVE-2010-3776, CVE-2010-3777, CVE-2010-3778)

Marc Schoenefeld and Christoph Diehl discovered several problems when handling downloadable fonts. The new OTS font sanitizing library was added to mitigate these issues. (CVE-2010-3768).

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.
