Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2003-315: quagga

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the quagga packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated Quagga packages that close a locally-exploitable denial of service
vulnerability are now available.

Quagga is an open source implementation of TCP/IP routing software.

Herbert Xu reported that Quagga can accept spoofed messages sent on the
kernel netlink interface by other users on the local machine. This could
lead to a local denial of service attack. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2003-0858 to
this issue.

Users of Quagga should upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain a
patch that checks that netlink messages actually came from the kernel.
This erratum also includes quagga-devel and quagga-contrib packages which
were not originally shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.
