Fedora Core 1 : lha-1.14i-12.1 (2004-119)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 13697


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


Ulf Harnhammar discovered two stack-based buffer overflows and two directory traversal flaws in LHA. An attacker could exploit the buffer overflows by creating a carefully crafted LHA archive in such a way that arbitrary code would be executed when the archive is tested or extracted by a victim. CVE-2004-0234. An attacker could exploit the directory traversal issues to create files as the victim outside of the expected directory. CVE-2004-0235.

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.


Update the affected lha and / or lha-debuginfo packages.
