Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.60681
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0003
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2008:0003.

The e2fsprogs packages contain a number of utilities for creating,
checking, modifying, and correcting any inconsistencies in second and third
extended (ext2/ext3) file systems.

Multiple integer overflow flaws were found in the way e2fsprogs processes
file system content. If a victim opens a carefully crafted file system with
a program using e2fsprogs, it may be possible to execute arbitrary code
with the permissions of the victim. It may be possible to leverage this
flaw in a virtualized environment to gain access to other virtualized
hosts. (CVE-2007-5497)

Red Hat would like to thank Rafal Wojtczuk of McAfee Avert Research for
responsibly disclosing these issues.

Users of e2fsprogs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to resolve these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
