Vulnerability Assessment Details

RHSA-2005-770: libuser

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the libuser packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated libuser packages that fix various security issues are now
available.

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

The libuser library implements a standardized interface for manipulating
and administering user and group accounts. The library uses pluggable
back-ends to interface to its data sources. Sample applications that are
modeled after applications from the shadow password suite are included in
the package.

Several denial of service bugs were discovered in libuser. Under certain
conditions it is possible for an application linked against libuser to
crash or operate irregularly. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2004-2392 to these
issues.

All users of libuser are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which contain a backported fix and are not vulnerable to these issues.
