Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
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 privileges of the 'daemon' user.
Likewise, a malicious SLP server could exploit the client library
vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running the SLP client application.
Update the affected packages.
