Ubuntu Security Notice USN-98-1 March 17, 2005
openslp vulnerabilities

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)

The following packages are affected:


The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to version 1.0.11-7ubuntu0.1. In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

The SuSE Security Team discovered several buffer overflows in the OpenSLP server and client library. By sending specially crafted SLP packets, a remote attacker could exploit this to crash the SLP server or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the "daemon" user. Likewise, a malicious SLP server could exploit the client library vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the SLP client application.
