Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2005:177: hylafax

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the hylafax package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:177 (hylafax).



faxcron, recvstats, and xferfaxstats in HylaFax 4.2.1 and earlier permits local
users to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on temporary files.
(CVE-2005-3069)

In addition, HylaFax has some provisional support for Unix domain sockets,
which is disabled in the default compile configuration. It is suspected that a
local user could create a fake /tmp/hyla.unix socket and intercept fax traffic
via this socket. In testing for this vulnerability, with CONFIG_UNIXTRANSPORT
disabled, it has been found that client programs correctly exit before sending
any data. (CVE-2005-3070)

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
