Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51427
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2003:664
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2003:664
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLA-2003:664.

Cistron RADIUS is an authentication and accounting system for
terminal servers that speak the RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial In
User Service) protocol.

David Luyer reported[1] a buffer overflow vulnerability in
radiusd-cistron versions <= 1.6.6 that could allow remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (DoS) and possibly execute arbitrary
code in the server context. The vulnerability resides in the handling
of the NAS-Port attribute, which can be interpreted as a negative
number, causing a buffer overflow.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project has assigned
the name CVE-2003-0450 to this issue[2].

This update fixes the problem using a patched version of
radiusd-cistron 1.6.6.


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