Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2002:026: libsafe

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the libsafe package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2002:026 (libsafe).


Wojciech Purczynski discovered that format string protection in libsafe can be
easily bypassed by using flag characters that are implemented in glibc but are
not implemented in libsafe. It was also discovered that *printf function
wrappers incorrectly parse argument indexing in format strings, making some
incorrect assumptions on the number of arguments and conversion specifications.
These problems were fixed by the libsafe authors in 2.0-12.
