Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:106 (cyrus-sasl).


A vulnerability was discovered in the libsasl library of cyrus-sasl. libsasl
honors the SASL_PATH environment variable blindly, which could permit a local
user to create a malicious 'library' that would get executed with the effective
ID of SASL when anything calls libsasl.
The provided packages are patched to protect against this vulnerability.
