The remote host is missing an update for the 'whoopsie'
Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the USN-4170-3 advisory.
Checks if a vulnerable Linux Distribution Package version is present on the target host.
USN-4170-1 fixed a vulnerability in Whoopsie and USN-4170-2 fixed a
subsequent regression. That update was incomplete and could still result in
Whoopsie potentially crashing when uploading crash reports on some
architectures. This update fixes the problem.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
Original advisory details:
Kevin Backhouse discovered Whoopsie incorrectly handled very large crash
reports. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to cause a denial
of service, expose sensitive information or execute code as the whoopsie
'whoopsie' Linux Distribution Package(s) on Ubuntu 19.04, Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Package(s).
