User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

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 6.06 LTS:
  libcurl3-gnutls                          7.15.1-1ubuntu2.1

Ubuntu 6.10:
  libcurl3-gnutls                          7.15.4-1ubuntu2.2

Ubuntu 7.04:
  libcurl3-gnutls                          7.15.5-1ubuntu2.1
