Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0542
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0542.

mcstrans is the translation daemon used on SELinux machines to translate
program context into human readable form.

An algorithmic complexity weakness was found in the way the mcstrans daemon
handled ranges of compartments in sensitivity labels. A local user could
trigger this flaw causing mctransd to temporarily stop responding to other
requests
a partial denial of service. (CVE-2007-4570)

This update also fixes a problem where the mcstrans daemon was preventing
SSH connections into an SELinux box, that was running a Multi-Level
Security (MLS) Policy with multiple categories.

Users of mcstrans are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
resolves this issue.
