Test ID:
Category:Fedora Local Security Checks
Title:Fedora Core 2 FEDORA-2004-154 (net-tools)

The remote host is missing an update to net-tools
announced via advisory FEDORA-2004-154.

The net-tools package contains basic networking tools, including
ifconfig, netstat, route, and others.

The code in netlink.c is based in part on the code of iproute. It
was not updated when CVE-2003-0856 was announced. The code in
question is within the netlink_listen & netlink_receive_dump
functions. They should both check the source of the packets by
looking at nl_pid and ensuring that it is 0 before performing
any reconfiguration of network interfaces.

These updated packages now contain the latest netplug daemon which fixes
that problem. All users of netplug are strongly encouraged to upgrade to
these new packages.
