Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.68220
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-962-1 (vte)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-962-1 (vte)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to vte
announced via advisory USN-962-1.

Details follow:

Janne Snabb discovered that applications using VTE, such as gnome-terminal,
did not correctly filter window and icon title request escape codes. If a
user were tricked into viewing specially crafted output in their terminal,
a remote attacker could execute arbitrary commands with user privileges.

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

Ubuntu 9.04:
libvte9 1:0.20.0-0ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 9.10:
libvte9 1:0.22.2-0ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
libvte9 1:0.23.5-0ubuntu1.1

After a standard system update you need to restart your session to make
all the necessary changes.
