Scientific Linux Security Update : ccid on SL6.x i386/x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 65008
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionAn integer overflow, leading to an array index error, was found in the way the CCID driver processed a smart card's serial number. A local attacker could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the PC/SC Lite pcscd daemon (root, by default), by inserting a specially crafted smart card. (CVE-2010-4530)
This update also fixes the following bug :
- Previously, CCID only recognized smart cards with 5V power supply. With this update, CCID also supports smart cards with different power supply.
SolutionUpdate the affected ccid and / or ccid-debuginfo packages.
