Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.60073
Category:Debian Local Security Checks
Title:Debian Security Advisory DSA 1440-1 (inotify-tools)
Summary:Debian Security Advisory DSA 1440-1 (inotify-tools)
Description:The remote host is missing an update to inotify-tools
announced via advisory DSA 1440-1.

It was discovered that a buffer overflow in the filename processing of
the inotify-tools, a command-line interface to inotify, may lead to
the execution of arbitrary code. This only affects the internal
library and none of the frontend tools shipped in Debian.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.3-2.

The old stable distribution (sarge) does not provide inotify-tools.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.11-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your inotify-tools package.
