Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:119: ppp

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the ppp package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:119 (ppp).



Marcus Meissner discovered that pppd's winbind test did not check for

the result of the setuid() call which could permit a possible hacker to

exploit this on systems with certain PAM limits enabled to execute the

NTLM authentication helper as root. This could possibly lead to

privilege escalation dependant upon the local winbind configuration.



Updated packages have been patched ot correct this issue.
