Ubuntu 8.04 LTS / 10.04 LTS / 10.10 / 11.04 : vino vulnerabilities (USN-1128-1)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 55089


The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.


Kevin Chen discovered that Vino incorrectly handled certain client framebuffer requests. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause Vino to crash, leading to a denial of service.

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 vino package.
