User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Ubuntu Andy Polyakov discovered that the DTLS implementation in OpenSSL was vulnerable. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted connection request to services using DTLS and execute arbitrary code with the service's privileges. There are no known Ubuntu applications that are currently using DTLS.
