[USN-3721-1] Apache Ant vulnerability

Mike Salvatore
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3721-1

ant vulnerability

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS


Apache Ant could be made to overwrite files.

Software Description:
- ant: Java based build tool like make


Danny Grander discovered that Apache Ant incorrectly handled certain
compressed files. If a user or automated system were tricked into
processing a specially crafted file, a remote attacker could use this issue
to overwrite arbitrary files.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
  ant                             1.9.3-2ubuntu0.1

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
