Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.69587
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-1107-1 (x11-xserver-utils)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-1107-1 (x11-xserver-utils)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to x11-xserver-utils
announced via advisory USN-1107-1.

Details follow:

Sebastian Krahmer discovered that the xrdb utility incorrectly filtered
crafted hostnames. An attacker could use this flaw with a malicious
DHCP server or with a remote xdmcp login and execute arbitrary code,
resulting in root privilege escalation.

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

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
x11-xserver-utils 7.3+2ubuntu0.1

Ubuntu 9.10:
x11-xserver-utils 7.4+2ubuntu3.1

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
x11-xserver-utils 7.5+1ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 10.10:
x11-xserver-utils 7.5+2ubuntu1.1

After a standard system update you need to reboot your computer to make
all the necessary changes.
