Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2004:038: sysklogd

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the sysklogd package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:038 (sysklogd).


Steve Grubb discovered a bug in sysklogd where it allocates an insufficient
amount of memory which causes sysklogd to write to unallocated memory. This
could permit for a malicious user to crash sysklogd.
The updated packages provide a patched sysklogd using patches from Openwall to
correct the problem and also corrects the use of an unitialized variable (a
previous use of 'count').
