Ubuntu 14.04 LTS / 15.04 : pollinate update (USN-2709-2)

High Nessus Plugin ID 86400


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


USN-2709-1 updated pollinate's certificate for entropy.ubuntu.com but did not include a new certificate authority certificate.

This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

The pollinate package bundles the certificate for entropy.ubuntu.com.
This update refreshes the certificate to match the new certificate for the server.

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 pollinate package.
