Amazon Linux AMI : quagga (ALAS-2014-279)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 72297


The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.


The bgp_attr_unknown function in bgp_attr.c in Quagga 0.99.21 does not properly initialize the total variable, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (bgpd crash) via a crafted BGP update.


Run 'yum update quagga' to update your system.
