Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2003:315
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2003:315.

Quagga is an open source implementation of TCP/IP routing software.

Herbert Xu reported that Quagga can accept spoofed messages sent on the
kernel netlink interface by other users on the local machine. This could
lead to a local denial of service attack. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2003-0858 to
this issue.

Users of Quagga should upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain a
patch that checks that netlink messages actually came from the kernel.
This erratum also includes quagga-devel and quagga-contrib packages which
were not originally shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.
