Posted on: 06/03/2004 03:07 PM

A net-tools update has been released for Fedora Core 2

Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : net-tools
Version : 1.60
Release : 25.1
Summary : Basic networking tools.
Description :
The net-tools package contains basic networking tools, including ifconfig, netstat, route, and others.


The code in netlink.c is based in part on the code of iproute. It was not updated when CAN-2003-0856 was announced. The code in question is within the netlink_listen netlink_receive_dump functions. They should both check the source of the packets by looking at nl_pid and ensuring that it is 0 before performing any reconfiguration of network interfaces.

These updated packages now contain the latest netplug daemon which fixes that problem. All users of netplug are strongly encouraged to upgrade to these new packages.
