Ubuntu 10.04 LTS : linux-lts-backport-oneiric vulnerability (USN-1313-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 57344


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


Nick Bowler discovered the kernel GHASH message digest algorithm incorrectly handled error conditions. A local attacker could exploit this to cause a kernel oops.

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.
