---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-277
2005-03-30
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : telnet
Version : 0.17
Release : 28.FC2.1
Summary : The client program for the telnet remote login protocol.
Description :
Telnet is a popular protocol for logging into remote systems over the Internet. The telnet package provides a command line telnet client.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Two buffer overflow flaws were discovered in the way the telnet client handles messages from a server. An attacker may be able to execute arbitrary code on a victim's machine if the victim can be tricked into connecting to a malicious telnet server. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CAN-2005-0468 and CAN-2005-0469 to these issues.


Red Hat would like to thank iDEFENSE for their responsible disclosure of this issue.
