Package        : hylafax
Vulnerability  : buffer overflows and format string vulnerabilities
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CAN-2001-1034
Bugtraq Id     : 3357 5349 5348

A set of problems have been discovered in Hylafax, a flexible
client/server fax software distributed with many GNU/Linux
distributions.  Quoting SecurityFocus the problems are in detail:

 * A format string vulnerability makes it possible for users to
   potentially execute arbitrary code on some implementations.  Due to
   insufficient checking of input, it's possible to execute a format
   string attack.  Since this only affects systems with the faxrm and
   faxalter programs installed setuid, Debian is not vulnerable.

 * A buffer overflow has been reported in Hylafax.  A malicious fax
   transmission may include a long scan line that will overflow a
   memory buffer, corrupting adjacent memory.  An exploid may result
   in a denial of service condition, or possibly the execution of
   arbitrary code with root privileges.

 * A format string vulnerability has been discovered in faxgetty.
   Incoming fax messages include a Transmitting Subscriber
   Identification (TSI) string, used to identify the sending fax
   machine.  Hylafax uses this data as part of a format string without
   properly sanitizing the input.  Malicious fax data may cause the
   server to crash, resulting in a denial of service condition.

 * Marcin Dawcewicz discovered a format string vulnerability in hfaxd,
   which will crash hfaxd under certain circumstances.  Since Debian
   doesn't have hfaxd installed setuid root, this problem can not
   directly lead into a vulnerability.  This has been fixed by Darren
   Nickerson, which was already present in newer versions, but not in
   the potato version.

These problems have been fixed in version 4.0.2-14.3 for the old
stable distribution (potato), in version 4.1.1-1.1 for the current
stable distribution (woody) and in version 4.1.2-2.1 for the unstable
distribution (sid).

We recommend that you upgrade your hylafax packages.

wget url
	will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
