Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : spice (MDVSA-2014:016)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 72100


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Updated spice packages fix security vulnerability :

A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the reds_handle_ticket() function in the spice-server library handled decryption of ticket data provided by the client. A remote user able to initiate a SPICE connection to an application acting as a SPICE server could use this flaw to crash the application (CVE-2013-4282).


Update the affected lib64spice-server-devel, lib64spice-server1 and / or spice-client packages.
