Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51149
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2004:546
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2004:546.

The cyrus-sasl package contains the Cyrus implementation of SASL. SASL is
the Simple Authentication and Security Layer, a method for adding
authentication support to connection-based protocols.

At application startup, libsasl and libsasl2 attempts to build a list
of all available SASL plug-ins which are available on the system. To do
so, the libraries search for and attempt to load every shared library found
within the plug-in directory. This location can be set with the SASL_PATH
environment variable.

In situations where an untrusted local user can affect the environment of a
privileged process, this behavior could be exploited to run arbitrary code
with the privileges of a setuid or setgid application. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2004-0884 to this issue.

Users of cyrus-sasl should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches and are not vulnerable to this issue.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
