Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.63897
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-762-1 (apt)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-762-1 (apt)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to apt
announced via advisory USN-762-1.

Details follow:

Alexandre Martani discovered that the APT daily cron script did not check
the return code of the date command. If a machine is configured for
automatic updates and is in a time zone where DST occurs at midnight, under
certain circumstances automatic updates might not be applied and could
become permanently disabled. (CVE-2009-1300)

Michael Casadevall discovered that APT did not properly verify repositories
signed with a revoked or expired key. If a repository were signed with only
an expired or revoked key and the signature was otherwise valid, APT would
consider the repository valid. (https://launchpad.net/bugs/356012)

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

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
apt 0.6.43.3ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
apt 0.7.9ubuntu17.2

Ubuntu 8.10:
apt 0.7.14ubuntu6.1

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