Package : yardradius
Vulnerability : buffer overflow
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2004-0987
Debian Bug : 278384

Max Vozeler noticed that yardradius, the YARD radius authentication and accounting server, contained a stack overflow similar to the one from radiusd which is referenced as CAN-2001-0534. This could lead to the execution of arbitrary code as root.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.20-2woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.20-15.

We recommend that you upgrade your yardradius package immediately.
