Synopsis

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

Description

It was discovered that an integer overflow in the XML UTF-8 decoding code could allow an attacker to bypass cross-site scripting (XSS) protections. This issue only affected Ubuntu 6.06 LTS, Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 9.10. (CVE-2009-5016)

It was discovered that the XML UTF-8 decoding code did not properly handle non-shortest form UTF-8 encoding and ill-formed subsequences in UTF-8 data, which could allow an attacker to bypass cross-site scripting (XSS) protections. (CVE-2010-3870)

It was discovered that attackers might be able to bypass open_basedir() restrictions by passing a specially crafted filename.
(CVE-2010-3436)
