Vulnerability Assessment Details
dpkg, ia32-libs, amd64-libs vulnerabilities
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
These remote packages are missing security patches :
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.
Most applications use the shared library provided by the "zlib1g"
however, some packages contain copies of the affected zlib
code, so they need to be upgraded as well.
Upgrade to :
- amd64-libs-1.1ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- amd64-libs-dev-1.1ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- dpkg-1.10.27ubuntu1.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- dpkg-dev-1.10.27ubuntu1.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- dpkg-doc-1.10.27ubuntu1.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- dselect-1.10.27ubuntu1.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- ia32-libs-0.5ubuntu3.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
- ia32-libs-dev-0.5ubuntu3.1 (Ubuntu 5.04)
