Description

The base-files package before 5.0.0ubuntu7.1 on Ubuntu 9.10 and before 5.0.0ubuntu20.10.04.2 on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, as shipped on Dell Latitude 2110 netbooks, does not require authentication for package installation, which allows remote archive servers and man-in-the-middle attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted package.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
