Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.51543
Category:Conectiva Local Security Checks
Title:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2002:539
Summary:Conectiva Security Advisory CLA-2002:539
Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory CLA-2002:539.

ypserv[1] is an implementation of the Network Information System
(NIS) which is used to centralize user information as well as
authentication.

Thorsten Kukuk identified and fixed a memory leak vulnerability[2] in
the ypserv daemon. Requests for non-existing maps would cause the
ypserv daemon to consume more and more memory. An attacker in the
local network could flood the service with such requests until the
memory is exhausted, characterizing a DoS condition.


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