The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the Quagga
bgpd daemon processed certain BGP Route Refresh (RR) messages. A
configured BGP peer could send a specially crafted BGP message,
causing bgpd on a target system to crash or, possibly, execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running bgpd.
Note: On Scientific Linux 5 it is not possible to exploit
CVE-2010-2948 to run arbitrary code as the overflow is blocked by
Multiple NULL pointer dereference flaws were found in the way the
Quagga bgpd daemon processed certain specially crafted BGP messages. A
configured BGP peer could crash bgpd on a target system via specially
crafted BGP messages. (CVE-2007-4826)
After installing the updated packages, the bgpd daemon must be
restarted for the update to take effect.
