Debian DLA-2098-1 : ipmitool security update

high Nessus Plugin ID 133562

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Christopher Ertl found that multiple functions in ipmitool neglect proper checking of the data received from a remote LAN party, which may lead to buffer overflows and potentially to remote code execution on the ipmitool side.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', this problem has been fixed in version 1.8.14-4+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your ipmitool packages.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected ipmitool package.
