Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 11.10 / 12.04 LTS : qt4-x11 vulnerability (USN-1628-1)

low Nessus Plugin ID 62870
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

Juliano Rizzo and Thai Duong discovered a flaw in the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol when it is used with data compression. If an attacker were able to perform a man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could be exploited to view sensitive information. This update disables TLS data compression in Qt by default.

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 libqt4-network package.
