|Gentoo Linux Security Advisory
Title: ulogd: Remote execution of arbitrary code (GLSA 200703-17)
Date: March 18, 2007
ulogd contains a possible buffer overflow potentially allowing for the remote execution of arbitrary code.
ulogd is a userspace daemon for netfilter related logging.
Vulnerable: < 1.23-r1
Unaffected: >= 1.23-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures
SUSE reported unspecified buffer overflows in ulogd involving the calculation of string lengths.
A remote attacker could trigger a possible buffer overflow through unspecified vectors, potentially leading to the remote execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the ulogd daemon, or more probably leading to the crash of the daemon.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All ulogd users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-admin/ulogd-1.23-r1"
