Fedora 12 : mipv6-daemon-0.4-5.fc12 (2010-11143)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes two security problems in mipv6-daemon: I)
CVE-2010-2522: The origin of netlink messages sent to mipv6-daemon was
not verified, allowing for local users to spoof netlink messages and
thus influence the behaviour of mipv6-daemon. II) CVE-2010-2523: A
specially crafted ND_OPT_PREFIX_INFORMATION or ND_OPT_HOME_AGENT_INFO
packet could be used to exploit a buffer overflow in mipv6-daemon.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
