Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2003:018: apcupsd

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the apcupsd package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:018 (apcupsd).


A remote root vulnerability in slave setups and some buffer overflows in the
network information server code were discovered by the apcupsd developers. They
have been fixed in the latest unstable version, 3.10.5 which contains additional
enhancements like USB support, and the latest stable version, 3.8.6.
There are a few changes that need to be noted, such as the port has changed from
port 7000 to post 3551 for NIS, and the new config only permits access from the
localhost. Users may need to modify their configuration files appropriately,
depending upon their configuration.
