Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2002:078: ypserv

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the ypserv package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2002:078 (ypserv).


A memory leak that could be triggered remotely was discovered in ypserv 2.5 and
earlier. This could lead to a Denial of Service as repeated requests for a
non-existant map will result in ypserv consuming more and more memory, and also
running more slowly. If the system runs out of available memory, ypserv would
also be killed.
