The remote host is missing an update for the 'pulseaudio'
package(s) announced via the USN-4355-1 advisory.
PulseAudio in Ubuntu contains additional functionality to mediate audio
recording for snap packages and it was discovered that this functionality
did not mediate PulseAudio module unloading. An attacker-controlled snap
with only the audio-playback interface connected could exploit this to
bypass access controls and record audio.
'pulseaudio' package(s) on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, Ubuntu 19.10, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
Please install the updated package(s).
