Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Timo Warns discovered that FreeRADIUS incorrectly handled certain long
timestamps in client certificates. A remote attacker could exploit
this flaw and cause the FreeRADIUS server to crash, resulting in a
denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
The default compiler options for affected releases should reduce the
vulnerability to a denial of service.
Update the affected freeradius package.
