Ubuntu 11.10 / 12.04 LTS : AppArmor update (USN-1676-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 63317
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionDan Rosenberg discovered that the example AppArmor profile for chromium-browser could be escaped by calling xdg-settings with a crafted environment.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected apparmor-profiles package.
