OpenPKG Security Advisory                            The OpenPKG Project                    
OpenPKG-SA-2004.001                                          08-Jan-2004

Package:             inn
Vulnerability:       remote code execution
OpenPKG Specific:    no

Affected Releases:   Affected Packages:          Corrected Packages:
OpenPKG CURRENT      <= inn-2.4.0-20031111       >= inn-2.4.0-20040108
OpenPKG 1.3          <= inn-2.4.0-1.3.0          >= inn-2.4.0-1.3.1
OpenPKG 1.2          none                        N.A.

  According to INN [0] announcement postings from Russ Allbery [1][2],
  Dan Riley discovered a buffer overflow in a portion of the control
  message handling code, first introduced in INN 2.4.0. It is fairly
  likely that this overflow is remotely exploitable to gain access and
  execute code under the user innd(8) runs as. INN 2.3.x and earlier
  versions are not affected.

  Please check whether you are affected by running "/bin/rpm
  -q inn". If you have the "inn" package installed and its version
  is affected (see above), we recommend that you immediately upgrade
  it (see Solution). [3][4]

  Select the updated source RPM appropriate for your OpenPKG release
  [5], fetch it from the OpenPKG FTP service [6] or a mirror location,
  verify its integrity [7], build a corresponding binary RPM from it [3]
  and update your OpenPKG installation by applying the binary RPM [4].
  For the current release OpenPKG 1.3, perform the following operations
  to permanently fix the security problem (for other releases adjust

  $ ftp
  ftp> bin
  ftp> cd release/1.3/UPD
  ftp> get inn-2.4.0-1.3.1.src.rpm
  ftp> bye
  $ /bin/rpm -v --checksig inn-2.4.0-1.3.1.src.rpm
  $ /bin/rpm --rebuild inn-2.4.0-1.3.1.src.rpm
  $ su -
  # /bin/rpm -Fvh /RPM/PKG/inn-2.4.0-1.3.1.*.rpm
