    rpm vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 12.10
    
    Summary:
    
    RPM could incorrectly validate package signatures.
    
    Software Description:
    - rpm: package manager for RPM
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that RPM incorrectly handled signature checking. An
    attacker could create a specially-crafted rpm with an invalid signature
    which could pass the signature validation check.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 12.10:
      rpm                             4.10.0-4ubuntu0.1
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
