Vulnerability Assessment Details

[GLSA-200505-13] FreeRADIUS: SQL injection and Denial of Service vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
FreeRADIUS: SQL injection and Denial of Service vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200505-13
(FreeRADIUS: SQL injection and Denial of Service vulnerability)


Primoz Bratanic discovered that the sql_escape_func function of
FreeRADIUS may be vulnerable to a buffer overflow (BID 13541). He also
discovered that FreeRADIUS fails to sanitize user-input before using it
in a SQL query, possibly permiting SQL command injection (BID 13540).

Impact

By supplying carefully crafted input, a malicious user could cause an
SQL injection or a buffer overflow, possibly leading to the disclosure
and the modification of sensitive data or Denial of Service by crashing
the server.

Workaround

There are no known workarounds at this time.

Solution:
All FreeRADIUS users should upgrade to the latest available version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-dialup/freeradius-1.0.2-r4"
