Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 2 2005-277: telnet

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the telnet package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2005-277 (telnet).

Telnet is a popular protocol for logging into remote systems over the
Internet. The telnet package provides a command line telnet client.

Update Information:

Two buffer overflow flaws were discovered in the way the telnet client
handles messages from a server. A possible hacker may be able to execute
arbitrary code on a victim's machine if the victim can be tricked into
connecting to a malicious telnet server. The Common Vulnerabilities
and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2005-0468
and CVE-2005-0469 to these issues.

Red Hat would like to thank iDEFENSE for their responsible disclosure
of
this issue.
