The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2004:609.

FreeRADIUS is a high-performance and highly configurable free RADIUS server
designed to allow centralized authentication and authorization for a network.

A number of flaws were found in FreeRADIUS versions prior to 1.0.1. An
attacker who is able to send packets to the server could construct
carefully constructed packets in such a way as to cause the server to
consume memory or crash. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
( has assigned the names CVE-2004-0938, CVE-2004-0960, and
CVE-2004-0961 to these issues.

FreeRADIUS 1.0.1, which is not vulnerable to these issues and also corrects
a number of bugs.

Please note that this update is available via
