Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2001:070: gdm

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the gdm package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2001:070 (gdm).


A buffer overrun exists in the XDMCP handling code used in gdm. By sending a
properly crafted XDMCP message, it is possible for a remote attacker to execute
arbitrary commands as root on the susceptible machine. By default, XDMCP is
disabled in gdm.conf on Mandrake Linux.
