Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-994-1 (libhx)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-994-1 (libhx)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to libhx
announced via advisory USN-994-1.

Details follow:

It was discovered that libHX incorrectly handled certain parameters to the
HX_split function. An attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of
service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user.

The default compiler options for affected releases should reduce the
vulnerability to a denial of service.

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

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
libhx10 1.10.2-2ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 9.04:
libhx14 1.28-1ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 9.10:
libhx18 2.9-3ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
libhx22 3.2-1ubuntu0.1

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