|Title:||Ubuntu USN-237-1 (nbd)|
|Summary:||Ubuntu USN-237-1 (nbd)|
The remote host is missing an update to nbd
announced via advisory USN-237-1.
A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)
The following packages are affected: nbd-server
Kurt Fitzner discovered that the NBD (network block device) server did
not correctly verify the maximum size of request packets. By sending
specially crafted large request packets, a remote attacker who is
allowed to access the server could exploit this to execute arbitrary
code with root privileges.
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1:2.7.4-1ubuntu0.1. In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
