    Ubuntu Security Notice USN-2709-2
    October 14, 2015
    
    pollinate update
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 15.04
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    The system would not have expected entropy available.
    
    Software Description:
    - pollinate: seed the pseudo random number generator in virtual machines
    
    Details:
    
    USN-2709-1 updated pollinate's certificate for entropy.ubuntu.com but did
    not include a new certificate authority certificate.
    
    This update fixes the problem.
    
    We apologize for the inconvenience.
    
    Original advisory details:
    
     The pollinate package bundles the certificate for entropy.ubuntu.com. This
     update refreshes the certificate to match the new certificate for the
     server.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 15.04:
      pollinate                       4.11-0ubuntu2.2
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      pollinate                       4.7-0ubuntu1.4
    
    In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
