Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2003:072: 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-2003:072 (ypserv).


A vulnerability was found in versions of ypserv prior to version 2.7. If a
malicious client were to query ypserv via TCP and subsequently ignore the
server's response, ypserv will block attempting to send the reply. The result is
that ypserv will fail to respond to other client requests. ypserv 2.7 and above
have been altered to fork a child for each client request, which prevents any
one request from causing the server to block.
