Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:017: pwlib

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the pwlib package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:017 (pwlib).


The NISCC uncovered bugs in pwlib prior to version 1.6.0 via a test suite for
the H.225 protocol. A possible hacker could trigger these bugs by sending carefully
crafted messages to an application that uses pwlib, and the severity would vary
based on the application, but likely would result in a Denial of Service (DoS).
The updated packages provide backported fixes from Craig Southeren of the
OpenH323 project to protect against this issue.
