RHSA-2005-504: telnet

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the telnet packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated telnet packages that fix an information disclosure issue are now
available.

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

The telnet package provides a command line telnet client.

Gael Delalleau discovered an information disclosure issue in the way the
telnet client handles messages from a server. A possible hacker could construct
a malicious telnet server that collects information from the environment of
any victim who connects to it. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0488 to this issue.

Users of telnet should upgrade to this updated package, which contains a
backported patch to correct this issue.
