Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2005-524: freeradius

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the freeradius packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated freeradius packages that fix a buffer overflow and possible SQL
injection attacks in the sql module are now available.

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

FreeRADIUS is a high-performance and highly configurable free RADIUS server
designed to permit centralized authentication and authorization for a network.

A buffer overflow bug was found in the way FreeRADIUS escapes data in an
SQL query. A possible hacker may be able to crash FreeRADIUS if they cause
FreeRADIUS to escape a string containing three or less characters. The
Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
the name CVE-2005-1454 to this issue.

Additionally a bug was found in the way FreeRADIUS escapes SQL data. It is
possible that an authenticated user could execute arbitrary SQL queries by
sending a specially crafted request to FreeRADIUS. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
CVE-2005-1455 to this issue.

Users of FreeRADIUS should update to these erratum packages, which contain
backported patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.
