PACKAGE   : radiusd-cistron
SUMMARY   : Buffer overflow vulnerability
DATE      : 2003-06-27 12:07:00
ID        : CLA-2003:664
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 7.0, 8, 9

DESCRIPTION
 Cistron RADIUS is an authentication and accounting system for
 terminal servers that speak the RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial In
 User Service) protocol.
 
 David Luyer reported[1] a buffer overflow vulnerability in
 radiusd-cistron versions <= 1.6.6 that could allow remote attackers
 to cause a denial of service (DoS) and possibly execute arbitrary
 code in the server context. The vulnerability resides in the handling
 of the NAS-Port attribute, which can be interpreted as a negative
 number, causing a buffer overflow.
 
 The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project has assigned
 the name CAN-2003-0450 to this issue[2].
 
 This update fixes the problem using a patched version of
 radiusd-cistron 1.6.6.


SOLUTION
 All radius-cistron users should upgrade. This update will
 automatically restart the service if it is already running.
