Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2002:007: at

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the at package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2002:007 (at).


zen-parse discovered a problem in the at command containing an extra call to
free() which can lead to a segfault with a carefully crafted, but incorrect,
format. This is caused due to a heap corruption that can be exploited under
certain circumstances because the at command is installed setuid root. Thanks to
SuSE for an additional security improvement that ads the O_EXCL (exclusive)
option to the open(2) system call inside the at code.
