    eucalyptus, rampart vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 11.04
    - Ubuntu 10.10
    - Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    An attacker could send crafted input to Eucalyptus to run commands as
    a valid user.
    
    Software Description:
    - eucalyptus: Elastic Utility Computing Architecture
    - rampart: Apache web services security engine
    
    Details:
    
    Juraj Somorovsky, Jorg Schwenk, Meiko Jensen and Xiaofeng Lou discovered
    that Eucalyptus did not properly validate SOAP requests. An unauthenticated
    remote attacker could exploit this to submit arbitrary commands to the
    Eucalyptus SOAP interface in the context of an authenticated user.

    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 11.04:
      eucalyptus-cloud                2.0.1+bzr1256-0ubuntu4.1
      librampart0                     1.3.0-1ubuntu2.1
    
    Ubuntu 10.10:
      eucalyptus-cloud                2.0+bzr1241-0ubuntu4.2

      librampart0                     1.3.0-0ubuntu7.1
