Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.63103
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-703-1 (xterm)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-703-1 (xterm)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to xterm
announced via advisory USN-703-1.

Details follow:

Paul Szabo discovered that the DECRQSS escape sequences were not handled
correctly by xterm. Additionally, window title operations were also not
safely handled. If a user were tricked into viewing a specially crafted
series of characters while in xterm, a remote attacker could execute
arbitrary commands with user privileges. (CVE-2006-7236, CVE-2008-2382)

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

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
xterm 208-3.1ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 7.10:
xterm 229-1ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
xterm 229-1ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 8.10:
xterm 235-1ubuntu1.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart any running xterms to
effect the necessary changes.
