Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:004: slocate

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the slocate package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:004 (slocate).


A vulnerability was discovered by Patrik Hornik in slocate versions up to and
including 2.7 where a carefully crafted database could overflow a heap-based
buffer. This could be exploited by a local user to gain rights of the
'slocate' group. The updated packages contain a patch from Kevin Lindsay that
causes slocate to drop rights before reading a user-supplied database.
