Scientific Linux Security Update : quagga on SL6.x i386/x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 61005
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA denial of service flaw was found in the way the Quagga bgpd daemon processed certain route metrics information. A BGP message with a specially crafted path limit attribute would cause the bgpd daemon to reset its session with the peer through which this message was received. (CVE-2010-1675)
A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way the Quagga bgpd daemon processed malformed route extended communities attributes. A configured BGP peer could crash bgpd on a target system via a specially crafted BGP message. (CVE-2010-1674)
After installing the updated packages, the bgpd daemon must be restarted for the update to take effect.
SolutionUpdate the affected quagga, quagga-contrib and / or quagga-devel packages.
