Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.53256
Category:Debian Local Security Checks
Title:Debian Security Advisory DSA 563-3 (cyrus-sasl)
Summary:Debian Security Advisory DSA 563-3 (cyrus-sasl)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to cyrus-sasl
announced via advisory DSA 563-3.

This advisory is an addition to DSA 563-1 and 563-2 which weren't able
to supersede the library on sparc and arm due to a different version
number for them in the stable archive. Other architectures were
updated properly. Another problem was reported in connection with
sendmail, though, which should be fixed with this update as well.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.5.27-3.1woody5.

For reference the advisory text follows:

A vulnerability has been discovered in the Cyrus implementation of
the SASL library, the Simple Authentication and Security Layer, a
method for adding authentication support to connection-based
protocols. The library honors the environment variable SASL_PATH
blindly, which allows a local user to link against a malicious
library to run arbitrary code with the privileges of a setuid or
setgid application.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.5.28-6.2 of cyrus-sasl and in version 2.1.19-1.3 of
cyrus-sasl2.

We recommend that you upgrade your libsasl packages.
