Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2003:053: mgetty

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the mgetty package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:053 (mgetty).


Two vulnerabilities were discovered in mgetty versions prior to 1.1.29. An
internal buffer could be overflowed if the caller name reported by the modem,
via Caller ID information, was too long. As well, the faxspool script that comes
with mgetty used a simple permissions scheme to permit or deny fax transmission
rights. Because the spooling directory used for outgoing faxes was
world-writeable, this scheme was easily circumvented.
