Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2006:200: rpm

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the rpm package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:200 (rpm).

A heap-based buffer overflow was discovered in librpm when the LANG or
LC_ALL environment variable is set to ru_RU.UTF-8 (and possibly other
locales), which could permit for user-assisted attackers to execute
arbitrary code via crafted RPM packages.
Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
