Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 8.04 LTS / 9.10 / 10.04 LTS / 10.10 : openslp, openslp-dfsg vulnerability (USN-1118-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 55076

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

It was discovered that OpenSLP incorrectly handled certain corrupted messages. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted packet to the OpenSLP server and cause it to hang, leading to a denial of service.

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

Solution

Update the affected libslp1 package.
