GENTOO LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 200210-010
- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE : ypserv
SUMMARY : information leak
DATE    : 2002-10-28 14:10 UTC
EXPLOIT : remote

- - --------------------------------------------------------------------

Thorsten Kukuck discovered a problem in the ypserv program which is
part of the Network Information Services (NIS).  A memory leak in all
versions of ypserv prior to 2.5 is remotely exploitable.  When a
malicious user could request a non-existing map the server will leak
parts of an old domainname and mapname.

SOLUTION

It is recommended that all Gentoo Linux users who are running
net-nds/ypserv-1.3.12 and earlier update their systems as follows:

emerge rsync
emerge ypserv
emerge clean
