Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA033] DSA-033-1 analog

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-033-1 analog

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The author of analog, Stephen Turner, has found a buffer
overflow bug in all versions of analog except of version 4.16. A malicious
user could use an ALIAS command to construct very long strings which were not
checked for length and boundaries. This bug is particularly dangerous if the
form interface (which permits unknown users to run the program via a CGI script)
has been installed. There doesn't seem to be a known exploit.

The bugfix has been backported to the version of analog from Debian
2.2. Version 4.01-1potato1 is fixed.

We recommend you upgrade your analog packages immediately.
