Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA180] DSA-180-1 nis

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-180-1 nis

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Thorsten Kukuck discovered a problem in the ypserv program which is
part of the Network Information Services (NIS). A memory leak in all
versions of ypserv prior to 2.5 is remotely exploitable. When a
malicious user could request a non-existing map the server will leak
parts of an old domainname and mapname.
This problem has been fixed in version 3.9-6.1 for the current stable
distribution (woody), in version 3.8-2.1 for the old stable
distribution (potato) and in version 3.9-6.2 for the unstable
distribution (sid).
We recommend that you upgrade your nis package.
