Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.69135
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-1078-1 (logwatch)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-1078-1 (logwatch)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to logwatch
announced via advisory USN-1078-1.

Details follow:

Dominik George discovered that logwatch did not properly sanitize
log file names that were passed to the shell as part of a command.
If a remote attacker were able to generate specially crafted filenames
(for example, via Samba logging), they could execute arbitrary code
with root privileges.

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

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
logwatch 7.3.6-1ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 9.10:
logwatch 7.3.6.cvs20090906-1ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
logwatch 7.3.6.cvs20090906-1ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 10.10:
logwatch 7.3.6.cvs20090906-1ubuntu3.1

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