Ubuntu Security Notice USN-1465-3
June 06, 2012
A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
- Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Fraudulent security certificates could allow sensitive information to
be exposed when accessing the Internet.
- ubuntuone-client: Ubuntu One client
USN-1465-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Ubuntu One Client. The update failed to
install on certain Ubuntu 10.04 LTS systems that had a legacy Python 2.5

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
