Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : ypserv (MDKSA-2002:078)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

A memory leak that could be triggered remotely was discovered in
ypserv 2.5 and earlier. This could lead to a Denial of Service as
repeated requests for a non-existent map will result in ypserv
consuming more and more memory, and also running more slowly. If the
system runs out of available memory, ypserv would also be killed.

Solution :

Update the affected ypserv package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
