Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 5 2007-018: avahi

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the avahi package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory FEDORA-2007-018 (avahi).

Avahi is a system which facilitates service discovery on
a local network -- this means that you can plug your laptop or
computer into a network and instantly be able to view other people who
you can chat with, find printers to print to or find files being
shared. This kind of technology is already found in MacOS X (branded
'Rendezvous', 'Bonjour' and sometimes 'ZeroConf') and is very
convenient.

Update Information:

avahi-0.6.11-3.fc5 should fix CVE-2006-6870 - the
consume_labels function in avahi-core/dns.c in Avahi before
0.6.16 permits remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(infinite loop) via a crafted compressed DNS response with a
label that points to itself.
