Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : stunnel (MDKSA-2002:004)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

All versions of stunnel from 3.15 to 3.21c are vulnerable to format
string bugs in the functions which implement smtp, pop, and nntp
client negotiations. Using stunnel with the '-n service' option and
the '-c' client mode option, a malicious server could use the format
sting vulnerability to run arbitrary code as the owner of the current
stunnel process. Version 3.22 is not vulnerable to this bug.
