Fedora 14 : ccid-1.4.0-2.fc14 (2011-0162)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 51517


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes the following security issue :

An integer overflow, leading to array index error was found in the way USB CCID (Chip/Smart Card Interface Devices) driver processed certain values of card serial number. A local attacker could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code, with the privileges of the user running the pcscd daemon, via a malicious smart card with specially crafted value of its serial number, inserted to the system USB port.

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 ccid package.
