USN98-1 : openslp vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
openslp vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- libslp-dev
- libslp1
- openslp-doc
- slpd
- slptool


Description :

The SuSE Security Team discovered several buffer overflows in the
OpenSLP server and client library. By sending specially crafted SLP
packets, a remote attacker could exploit this to crash the SLP server
or execute arbitrary code with the rights of the "daemon" user.
Likewise, a malicious SLP server could exploit the client library
vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code with the rights of the
user running the SLP client application.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- libslp-dev-1.0.11-7ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- libslp1-1.0.11-7ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- openslp-doc-1.0.11-7ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- slpd-1.0.11-7ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- slptool-1.0.11-7ubuntu0.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
