implements the BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) routing protocol.
A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the Quagga bgpd
daemon processed certain BGP Route Refresh (RR) messages. A configured BGP

system to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
the user running bgpd. (CVE-2010-2948)
Note: On Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 it is not possible to exploit
CVE-2010-2948 to run arbitrary code as the overflow is blocked by
A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the Quagga bgpd daemon
parsed the paths of autonomous systems (AS). A configured BGP peer could
crash bgpd on a target system via a specially-crafted BGP message.
Users of quagga should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to correct these issues. After installing the updated
packages, the bgpd daemon must be restarted for the update to take effect.
