Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.63509
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-729-1 (python-crypto)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-729-1 (python-crypto)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to python-crypto
announced via advisory USN-729-1.

Details follow:

Mike Wiacek discovered that the ARC2 implementation in Python Crypto
did not correctly check the key length. If a user or automated system
were tricked into processing a malicious ARC2 stream, a remote attacker
could execute arbitrary code or crash the application using Python Crypto,
leading to a denial of service.

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

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
python2.4-crypto 2.0.1+dfsg1-1ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 7.10:
python-crypto 2.0.1+dfsg1-2ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
python-crypto 2.0.1+dfsg1-2.1ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 8.10:
python-crypto 2.0.1+dfsg1-2.3ubuntu0.1

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