Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA040] DSA-040-1 slrn

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-040-1 slrn

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
Bill Nottingham reported a problem in the
wrapping/unwrapping functions of the slrn newsreader. A long header in a
message might overflow a buffer, which could result in executing arbitrary
code encoded in the message.

The default configuration does not have wrapping enable, but it can easily
be enabled either by changing the configuration or pressing W while viewing a
message.

This has been fixed in version 0.9.6.2-9potato1 and we recommand that you
upgrade your slrn package immediately.
