GLSA-201201-06 : iSCSI Enterprise Target: Arbitrary code execution
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 57648
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201201-06 (iSCSI Enterprise Target: Arbitrary code execution)
Multiple functions in usr/iscsi/isns.c of iSCSI Enterprise Target contain format string errors.
A remote attacker could send a specially crafted Internet Storage Name Service (iSNS) request, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with root privileges or cause a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll iSCSI Enterprise Target users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=sys-block/iscsitarget-1.4.19' NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are available since August 11, 2010. It is likely that your system is already no longer affected by this issue.
