Ubuntu 11.10 : linux vulnerability (USN-1322-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 57467

Synopsis

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

Description

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.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
