Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2003-317: iproute

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the iproute packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


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

The iproute package contains advanced IP routing and network device
configuration tools.

Herbert Xu reported that iproute 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-2003-0856 to
this issue.

Users of iproute should upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain a
patch that checks that netlink messages actually came from the kernel.
