Fedora Core 1 : lha-1.14i-12.1 (2004-119)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

Ulf Harnhammar discovered two stack-based buffer overflows and two
directory traversal flaws in LHA. An attacker could exploit the buffer
overflows by creating a carefully crafted LHA archive in such a way
that arbitrary code would be executed when the archive is tested or
extracted by a victim. CVE-2004-0234. An attacker could exploit the
directory traversal issues to create files as the victim outside of
the expected directory. CVE-2004-0235.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
