--------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedora Update Notification FEDORA-2005-274 2005-03-30 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Product : Fedora Core 3 Name : telnet Version : 0.17 Release : 32.FC3.2 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 ( 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. --------------------------------------------------------------------- * Thu Mar 17 2005 Harald Hoyer <> - 1:0.17-32.FC3.2 - fixed CAN-2005-468 and CAN-2005-469 * Thu Jan 13 2005 Jason Vas Dias <> - 1:0.17-31 - bug 143929 / 145004 : fix race condition in telnetd on wtmp lock - when cleanup() is entered from main process and in signal - handler --------------------------------------------------------------------- This update can be downloaded from: 89834e05dfaaf87030241f12a8d43622 SRPMS/telnet-0.17-32.FC3.2.src.rpm 9ffe815c3d82132847f6f243662d8689 x86_64/telnet-0.17-32.FC3.2.x86_64.rpm 70c70de3253e43c621e1bd753ad85ac8 x86_64/telnet-server-0.17-32.FC3.2.x86_64.rpm 299a0a1ddc2f575b14509757a8e352fa x86_64/debug/telnet-debuginfo-0.17-32.FC3.2.x86_64.rpm 317a655b172288cfc0615b1a06fd2e07 i386/telnet-0.17-32.FC3.2.i386.rpm a51075465fe35429b26f83df4e1888b5 i386/telnet-server-0.17-32.FC3.2.i386.rpm 0f90b3b223e4a5286882f29d2ddc39dc i386/debug/telnet-debuginfo-0.17-32.FC3.2.i386.rpm This update can also be installed with the Update Agent; you can launch the Update Agent with the 'up2date' command. --------------------------------------------------------------------- -- fedora-announce-list mailing list
