============================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 11.10
- Ubuntu 11.04
- Ubuntu 10.10
- Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

Summary:

httplib2 could be made to expose sensitive information over the network.

Software Description:
- python-httplib2: comprehensive HTTP client library written for Python

Details:

The httplib2 Python library earlier than version 0.7.0 did not perform any
server certificate validation when using HTTPS connections. If a remote
attacker were able to perform a man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could
be exploited to alter or compromise confidential information in
applications that used the httplib2 library.

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 11.10:

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
