Ubuntu Security Notice USN-397-1
20th December, 2006
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
- Ubuntu 6.10
- Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Jose Ramon Palanco discovered that the mono System.Web class did not
consistently verify local file paths. As a result, the source code for
mono web applications could be retrieved remotely, possibly leading to
further compromise via the application's source.
The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package version:
- Ubuntu 6.10:
- libmono-system-web2.0-cil 126.96.36.199-1ubuntu7.1
- libmono-system-web1.0-cil 188.8.131.52-1ubuntu7.1
- Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
- mono-classlib-2.0 184.108.40.206-0ubuntu3.2
- mono-classlib-1.0 220.127.116.11-0ubuntu3.2
To update your system, please follow these instructions: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Security/Upgrades.
After a standard system upgrade you need to restart any mono web
applications to effect the necessary changes.
