Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.66788
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-891-1 (lintian)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-891-1 (lintian)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to lintian
announced via advisory USN-891-1.

Details follow:

It was discovered that lintian did not correctly validate certain
filenames when processing input. If a user or an automated system
were tricked into running lintian on a specially crafted set of files,
a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with user privileges.

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

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
lintian 1.23.16ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
lintian 1.23.46ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 8.10:
lintian 1.24.3ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 9.04:
lintian 2.2.5ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 9.10:
lintian 2.2.17ubuntu1.1

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