How to fix the PRISM bug in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
A fix for the PRISA bug in the latest version of Ubuntu 10,10.04, is now available.
The bug, which affects the company’s popular desktop, has been around for a long time.
The PRISA flaw, which is similar to CVE-2014-0186, allows an attacker to secretly extract the data of a target and then use it to take advantage of their machine to upload and download massive amounts of data.
” This has been the biggest PRISM issue in the past several years,” said Klaus Kühn, a security researcher at University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Computer Security Research, in a blog post.
For now, there is no fix.
However, Kühl has posted a patch that adds the PRISAs patch and adds a new bug in Ubuntu 10.10 which, according to Kühnel, should help fix the problem.
Kühn says the PRISC fixes are meant to be a “one-click fix” and are just a patch.
As of now, it is not clear how many users are affected by the PRISE bug, or if it will be patched in a timely manner.
What is clear is that the PRIME bug has been researched and patched several times in the last two years.
So it seems likely that a fix for this PRISM flaw will come sooner rather than later.
