Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:028: ncpfs

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the ncpfs package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:028 (ncpfs).

Erik Sjolund discovered two vulnerabilities in programs bundled with ncpfs. Due
to a flaw in nwclient.c, utilities that use the NetWare client functions
insecurely access files with elevated rights (CVE-2005-0013), and there is
a potentially exploitable buffer overflow in the ncplogin program

As well, an older vulnerability found by Karol Wiesek is corrected with these
new versions of ncpfs. Karol found a buffer overflow in the handling of the
'-T' option in the ncplogin and ncpmap utilities (CVE-2004-1079).
