Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2002-255: webalizer

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the webalizer packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Updated Webalizer packages are available for Red Hat Linux Advanced Server
2.1 which fix an obscure buffer overflow bug in the DNS resolver code.

[Updated 13 Jan 2003]
Added fixed packages for the Itanium (IA64) architecture.

[Updated 06 Feb 2003]
Added fixed packages for Advanced Workstation 2.1

Webalizer is a Web server log file analysis program which produces
detailed usage reports in HTML format.

A buffer overflow in Webalizer versions prior to 2.01-10, when configured
to use reverse DNS lookups, may permit remote attackers to execute arbitrary
code by connecting to the monitored Web server from an IP address that
resolves to a long hostname.

Users of Webalizer are advised to upgrade to these errata packages which
contain Webalizer version 2.01-09 with backported security and bug fix
