Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2001:051: minicom

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the minicom package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2001:051 (minicom).


Several format string vulnerabilities exist in the minicom program. These bugs
can be exploited to obtain group uucp privilege. A simple fix is to simply
remove the setgid bit on /usr/bin/minicom, however these new packages introduce
some fixes for the vulnerabilties through a patch from Red Hat, and also strip
the setgid bit.
