Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : pwlib (MDKSA-2004:017)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

The NISCC uncovered bugs in pwlib prior to version 1.6.0 via a test
suite for the H.225 protocol. An attacker could trigger these bugs by
sending carefully crafted messages to an application that uses pwlib,
and the severity would vary based on the application, but likely would
result in a Denial of Service (DoS).

The updated packages provide backported fixes from Craig Southeren of
the OpenH323 project to protect against this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

Family: Mandriva Local Security Checks

Nessus Plugin ID: 14117 (mandrake_MDKSA-2004-017.nasl)
