Vulnerability Assessment Details

USN151-4 : rpm vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
rpm vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- librpm-dev
- librpm4
- lsb-rpm
- rpm


Description :

USN-148-1 and USN-151-1 fixed two security flaws in zlib, which could
be exploited to cause Denial of Service attacks or even arbitrary code
execution with malicious data streams.

Since lsb-rpm is statically linked against the zlib library, it is also
affected by these issues. The updated packagages have been rebuilt
against the fixed zlib.

Please note that lsb-rpm is not officially supported (it is in the "universe"
component of the archive).

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- librpm-dev-4.0.4-31ubuntu1.1 (Ubuntu 5.10)
- librpm4-4.0.4-31ubuntu1.1 (Ubuntu 5.10)
- lsb-rpm-4.0.4-31ubuntu1.1 (Ubuntu 5.10)
- rpm-4.0.4-31ubuntu1.1 (Ubuntu 5.10)
