Synopsis :

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

Description :

Memory leak in freeRADIUS 1.1.5 and earlier allows remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a large number of
EAP-TTLS tunnel connections using malformed Diameter format
attributes, which causes the authentication request to be rejected but
does not reclaim VALUE_PAIR data structures.

Updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)
