==========================================================Ubuntu Security Notice USN-689-1          December 10, 2008
vinagre vulnerability
A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

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

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
  vinagre                         0.5.1-0ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 8.10:
  vinagre                         2.24.1-0ubuntu1.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Vinagre to effect
the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Alfredo Ortega discovered a flaw in Vinagre's use of format strings. A
remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability if they tricked a user
into connecting to a malicious VNC server, or opening a specially crafted
URI with Vinagre. In Ubuntu 8.04, it was possible to execute arbitrary
code with user privileges. In Ubuntu 8.10, Vinagre would simply abort,
leading to a denial of service.
