Description :

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2007:0389 :

An updated quagga package that fixes a security bug is now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, 4 and 5.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.

Quagga is a TCP/IP based routing software suite.

An out of bounds memory read flaw was discovered in Quagga's bgpd. A
configured peer of bgpd could cause Quagga to crash, leading to a
denial of service (CVE-2007-1995).

All users of Quagga should upgrade to this updated package, which
contains a backported patch to correct these issues.
