Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the nasm packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated nasm package that fixes multiple security issues is now
available.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat
Security Response Team.

NASM is an 80x86 assembler.

Two stack based buffer overflow bugs have been found in nasm. A possible hacker
could create an ASM file in such a way that when compiled by a victim,
could execute arbitrary code on their machine. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2004-1287
and CVE-2005-1194 to these issues.

All users of nasm are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
contains backported fixes for these issues.
