Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2003-312: pan

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the pan packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated Pan packages that close a denial of service vulnerability are now
available.

Pan is a Gnome/GTK+ newsreader.

A bug in Pan versions prior to 0.13.4 can cause Pan to crash when parsing
an article header containing a very long author email address. This bug
causes a denial of service (crash), but cannot be exploited further. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2003-0855 to this issue.

Users of Pan are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which
contain a backported patch correcting this issue.

Red Hat would like to thank Kasper Dupont for alerting us to this issue and
to Charles Kerr for providing the patch.
