Posted on: 10/08/2004 05:30 PM

A cyrus-sasl update is available for Fedora Core 2

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : cyrus-sasl
Version : 2.1.18

Release : 2.2

Summary : The Cyrus SASL library.
Description :
The cyrus-sasl package contains the Cyrus implementation of SASL. SASL is the Simple Authentication and Security Layer, a method for adding authentication support to connection-based protocols.

Update Information:

At application startup, libsasl and libsasl2 attempt to build a list of all SASL plug-ins which are available on the system. To do so, the libraries search for and attempt to load every shared library found within the plug-in directory. This location can be set with the SASL_PATH environment variable.

In situations where an untrusted local user can affect the environment of a privileged process, this behavior could be exploited to run arbitrary code with the privileges of a setuid or setgid application. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2004-0884 to this issue.

Users of cyrus-sasl should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches and are not vulnerable to this issue.
