Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2002:018 (cyrus-sasl).


Kari Hurtta discovered that a format bug exists in the Cyrus SASL library, which
is used to provide an authentication API for mail clients and servers, as well
as other services such as LDAP. The format bug was found in one of the logging
functions which could be used by a possible hacker to obtain acces to a machine or to
possibly acquire elevated rights. Thanks to the SuSE security team for
providing the fix.
