Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.57309
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-335-1 (heartbeat)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-335-1 (heartbeat)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to heartbeat
announced via advisory USN-335-1.

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 sufficiently verify some
packet input data, which could lead to an out-of-boundary memory
access. A remote attacker could exploit this to crash the daemon
(Denial of Service).

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

Ubuntu 5.04:
heartbeat 1.2.3-3ubuntu1.3

Ubuntu 5.10:
heartbeat 1.2.3-12ubuntu0.2

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
heartbeat 1.2.4-2ubuntu0.2

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