Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51381
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2004:889
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2004:889
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLA-2004:889.

SASL[1] is the Simple Authentication and Security Layer, a method for
adding authentication support to connection-based protocols.

A vulnerability[2] has been discovered in the Cyrus implementation of
the SASL library. The library honors the environment variable
SASL_PATH blindly, which allows a local attacker to link against a
malicious library to run arbitrary code with the privileges of a
setuid or setgid application.


Solution:
The apt tool can be used to perform RPM package upgrades
by running 'apt-get update' followed by 'apt-get upgrade'
