Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2002:061 (glibc).


A heap buffer overflow exists in the XDR decoder in glibc version 2.2.5 and
earlier. XDR is a mechanism for encoding data structures for use with RPC, which
is derived from Sun's RPC implementation which is likewise vulnerable to a heap
overflow. Depending on the application, this vulnerability may be exploitable
and could lead to arbitrary code execution. Thanks to Solar Designer for the
patches used to correct this vulnerability.
