rinetd - incorrect memory resizing



Debian Security Advisory

DSA-289-1 rinetd -- incorrect memory resizing

Date Reported:
17 Apr 2003
Affected Packages:
rinetd
Vulnerable:
Yes
Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CAN-2003-0212.
More information:

Sam Hocevar discovered a security problem in rinetd, an IP connection redirection server. When the connection list is full, rinetd resizes the list in order to store the new incoming connection. However, this is done improperly, resulting in a denial of service and potentially execution of arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 0.61-1.1.

For the old stable distribution (potato) this problem has been fixed in version 0.52-2.1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 0.61-2

We recommend that you upgrade your rinetd package.

Fixed in:

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 (potato)
