Test ID:
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-534-1 (openssl)

The remote host is missing an update to openssl
announced via advisory USN-534-1.

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.

Details follow:

Andy Polyakov discovered that the DTLS implementation in OpenSSL
was vulnerable. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted
connection request to services using DTLS and execute arbitrary code
with the service's privileges. There are no known Ubuntu applications
that are currently using DTLS.

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

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
libssl0.9.8 0.9.8a-7ubuntu0.5

Ubuntu 6.10:
libssl0.9.8 0.9.8b-2ubuntu2.2

Ubuntu 7.04:
libssl0.9.8 0.9.8c-4ubuntu0.2

Ubuntu 7.10:
libssl0.9.8 0.9.8e-5ubuntu3.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to reboot your computer to
affect the necessary changes.

Risk factor : Critical
