Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : freeradius (MDVSA-2013:038)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 66052
SynopsisThe remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated freeradius packages fixes security vulnerabilities :
It was found that the unix module ignored the password expiration setting in /etc/shadow. If FreeRADIUS was configured to use this module for user authentication, this flaw could allow users with an expired password to successfully authenticate, even though their access should have been denied (CVE-2011-4966).
Stack-based buffer overflow in the cbtls_verify function in FreeRADIUS 2.1.10 through 2.1.12, when using TLS-based EAP methods, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (server crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a long not after timestamp in a client certificate (CVE-2012-3547).
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
