Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.57187
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-326-1 (heartbeat)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-326-1 (heartbeat)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to heartbeat
announced via advisory USN-326-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.04
Ubuntu 5.10
Ubuntu 6.06 LTS

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

Yan Rong Ge discovered that heartbeat did not set proper permissions
for an allocated shared memory segment. A local attacker could exploit
this to render the heartbeat service unavailable (Denial of
Service).

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

Ubuntu 5.04:
heartbeat 1.2.3-3ubuntu1.2

Ubuntu 5.10:
heartbeat 1.2.3-12ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
heartbeat 1.2.4-2ubuntu0.1

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.
