Medium Nessus Plugin ID 60340
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionMultiple integer overflow flaws were found in the way e2fsprogs processes file system content. If a victim opens a carefully crafted file system with a program using e2fsprogs, it may be possible to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the victim. It may be possible to leverage this flaw in a virtualized environment to gain access to other virtualized hosts. (CVE-2007-5497)
SolutionUpdate the affected e2fsprogs, e2fsprogs-devel and / or e2fsprogs-libs packages.
