Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.60113
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-560-1 (tomboy)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-560-1 (tomboy)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to tomboy
announced via advisory USN-560-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10
Ubuntu 7.04
Ubuntu 7.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Jan Oravec discovered that Tomboy did not properly setup the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. A local attacker could
exploit this to execute arbitrary code as the user invoking
the program.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
tomboy 0.3.5-1ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 6.10:
tomboy 0.4.1-0ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 7.04:
tomboy 0.6.3-0ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 7.10:
tomboy 0.8.0-1ubuntu0.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Tomboy to effect
the necessary changes.
