Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA930] DSA-930-2 smstools

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-930-2 smstools

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Ulf Härnhammar from the Debian Security Audit project discovered a
format string attack in the logging code of smstools, which may be
exploited to execute arbitrary code with root rights.
The original advisory for this issue said that the old stable
distribution (woody) was not affected because it did not contain
smstools. This was incorrect, and the only change in this updated
advisory is the inclusion of corrected packages for woody.
For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.5.0-2woody0.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.14.8-1sarge0.
For the unstable distribution the package will be updated shortly.
We recommend that you upgrade your smstools package.
