Fedora 13 : mipv6-daemon-0.4-5.fc13 (2010-11152)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 48356
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected mipv6-daemon package.
