Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.56255
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-247-1 (heimdal)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-247-1 (heimdal)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to heimdal
announced via advisory USN-247-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)
Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected: heimdal-servers

A privilege escalation flaw has been found in the heimdal rsh (remote
shell) server. This allowed an authenticated attacker to overwrite
arbitrary files and gain ownership of them.

Please note that the heimdal-servers package is not officially
supported in Ubuntu (it is in the 'universe' component of the
archive). However, this affects you if you use a customized version
built from the heimdal source package (which is supported).

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 0.6.2-3ubuntu0.2 (for Ubuntu 4.10), 0.6.3-7ubuntu1.2 (for
Ubuntu 5.04), or 0.6.3-11ubuntu1.1 (for Ubuntu 5.10). In general, a
standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.
