Description

USN-1465-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Ubuntu One Client. The update failed to install on certain Ubuntu 10.04 LTS systems that had a legacy Python 2.5 package installed. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

It was discovered that the Ubuntu One Client incorrectly validated server certificates when using HTTPS connections. If a remote attacker were able to perform a man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could be exploited to alter or compromise confidential information.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
