-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 ________________________________________________________________________ OpenPKG Security Advisory The OpenPKG Project http://www.openpkg.org/security.html http://www.openpkg.org firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com 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. Description: According to INN  announcement postings from Russ Allbery , 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).  Solution: Select the updated source RPM appropriate for your OpenPKG release , fetch it from the OpenPKG FTP service  or a mirror location, verify its integrity , build a corresponding binary RPM from it  and update your OpenPKG installation by applying the binary RPM . For the current release OpenPKG 1.3, perform the following operations to permanently fix the security problem (for other releases adjust accordingly). $ ftp ftp.openpkg.org 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 ________________________________________________________________________ References:  http://www.isc.org/products/INN/  http://lists.litech.org/pipermail/inn-workers/2004q1/002762.html  http://lists.litech.org/pipermail/inn-workers/2004q1/002763.html  http://www.openpkg.org/tutorial.html#regular-source  http://www.openpkg.org/tutorial.html#regular-binary  ftp://ftp.openpkg.org/release/1.3/UPD/inn-2.4.0-1.3.1.src.rpm  ftp://ftp.openpkg.org/release/1.3/UPD/  http://www.openpkg.org/security.html#signature ________________________________________________________________________ For security reasons, this advisory was digitally signed with the OpenPGP public key "OpenPKG "(ID 63C4CB9F) of the OpenPKG project which you can retrieve from http://pgp.openpkg.org and hkp://pgp.openpkg.org.
