Vulnerability Assessment Details
ncpfs: Multiple vulnerabilities
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200501-44
(ncpfs: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Erik Sjolund discovered two vulnerabilities in the programs
bundled with ncpfs: there is a potentially exploitable buffer overflow
in ncplogin (CVE-2005-0014), and due to a flaw in nwclient.c, utilities
using the NetWare client functions insecurely access files with
elevated rights (CVE-2005-0013).
The buffer overflow might permit a malicious remote NetWare server
to execute arbitrary code on the NetWare client. Furthermore, a local
attacker may be able to create links and access files with elevated
rights using SUID ncpfs utilities.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ncpfs users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-fs/ncpfs-2.2.6"
Network Security Threat Level: Medium
