Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.59096
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-411-1 (libsoup)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-411-1 (libsoup)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to libsoup
announced via advisory USN-411-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.10

Ubuntu 6.10

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

Details follow:

Roland Lezuo and Josselin Mouette discovered that the HTTP server code
in libsoup did not correctly verify request headers. Remote attackers
could crash applications using libsoup by sending a crafted HTTP
request, resulting in a denial of service.

following package versions:

Ubuntu 5.10:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
