USN151-3 : aide vulnerabilities Vulnerability Scan
Vulnerability Scan Summary
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote package "aide" is missing a security patch.
USN-148-1 and USN-151-1 fixed two security flaws in zlib, which could
be exploited to cause Denial of Service attacks or even arbitrary code
execution with malicious data streams.
Since aide is statically linked against the zlib library, it is also
affected by these issues. The updated packagages have been rebuilt
against the fixed zlib.
Upgrade to :
- aide-0.10-6.1ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 5.10)
Threat Level: High
