Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : ncpfs (MDKSA-2005:028)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Erik Sjolund discovered two vulnerabilities in programs bundled with
ncpfs. Due to a flaw in nwclient.c, utilities that use the NetWare
client functions insecurely access files with elevated privileges
(CVE-2005-0013), and there is a potentially exploitable buffer
overflow in the ncplogin program (CVE-2005-0014).

As well, an older vulnerability found by Karol Wiesek is corrected
with these new versions of ncpfs. Karol found a buffer overflow in the
handling of the '-T' option in the ncplogin and ncpmap utilities

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
