Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.60222
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-570-1 (boost)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-570-1 (boost)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to boost
announced via advisory USN-570-1.

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.

Will Drewry and Tavis Ormandy discovered that the boost library
did not properly perform input validation on regular expressions.
An attacker could send a specially crafted regular expression to
an application linked against boost and cause a denial of service
via application crash.

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

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
libboost-regex1.33.1 1.33.1-2ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 6.10:
libboost-regex1.33.1 1.33.1-7ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 7.04:
libboost-regex1.33.1 1.33.1-9ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 7.10:
libboost-regex1.34.1 1.34.1-2ubuntu1.1

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