Title: FreeRADIUS: Multiple Denial of Service vulnerabilities (GLSA 200409-29)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: September 22, 2004
Updated: May 22, 2006
Bug(s): #60587
ID: 200409-29

Synopsis


Multiple Denial of Service vulnerabilities were found and fixed in
FreeRADIUS.


Background


FreeRADIUS is an open source RADIUS authentication server
implementation.


Affected Packages

Package: net-dialup/freeradius
Vulnerable: < 1.0.1
Unaffected: >= 1.0.1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


There are undisclosed defects in the way FreeRADIUS handles incorrect
received packets.


Impact


A remote attacker could send specially-crafted packets to the
FreeRADIUS server to deny service to other users by crashing the
server.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time.


Resolution


All FreeRADIUS users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge sync
   
    # emerge -pv ">=net-dialup/freeradius-1.0.1"
# emerge ">=net-dialup/freeradius-1.0.1"
