Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2005:237 (cpio).



A buffer overflow in cpio 2.6 on 64-bit platforms could permit a local user to
create a DoS (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code when creating a cpio
archive with a file whose size is represented by more than 8 digits. The
updated packages have been patched to correct these problems.
