Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.68196
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-968-1 (base-files)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-968-1 (base-files)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to base-files
announced via advisory USN-968-1.

Details follow:

It was discovered that the Ubuntu image shipped on some Dell Latitude
2110 systems was accidentally configured to allow unauthenticated package
installations. A remote attacker intercepting network communications or
a malicious archive mirror server could exploit this to trick the user
into installing unsigned packages, resulting in arbitrary code execution
with root privileges.

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

Ubuntu 9.10:
base-files 5.0.0ubuntu7.1

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
base-files 5.0.0ubuntu20.10.04.2

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
