Vulnerability Assessment Details

Fedora Core 6 2006-1340: 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-2006-1340 (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 before 0.6.15 does not verify the sender identity of
netlink messages to ensure that they come from the kernel
instead of another process, which permits local users to
spoof network changes to Avahi.
