Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2004:153.

overwritten when a victim connects to it. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-0180 to
this issue.

Users of CVS are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which
contain a patch correcting this issue.
