Ubuntu 10.10 : eucalyptus vulnerability (USN-1033-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 51340


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


It was discovered that Eucalyptus did not verify password resets from the Admin UI correctly. An unauthenticated remote attacker could issue password reset requests to gain admin privileges in the Eucalyptus environment.

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.
