-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedora Update Notification FEDORA-2011-0123 2011-01-05 20:41:44 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Name : pcsc-lite Product : Fedora 13 Version : 1.5.5 Release : 5.fc13 URL : http://pcsclite.alioth.debian.org/ Summary : PC/SC Lite smart card framework and applications Description : The purpose of PC/SC Lite is to provide a Windows(R) SCard interface in a very small form factor for communicating to smartcards and readers. PC/SC Lite uses the same winscard API as used under Windows(R). This package includes the PC/SC Lite daemon, a resource manager that coordinates communications with smart card readers and smart cards that are connected to the system, as well as other command line tools. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Update Information: This update fixes the following security issue: A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way PC/SC Lite smart card framework decoded certain attribute values of the Answer-to-Reset (ATR) message, received back from the card after connecting. A local attacker could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the pcscd daemon, via a malicious smart card inserted to the system USB port. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ChangeLog: * Wed Jan 5 2011 Kalev Lember <kalev@smartlink.ee> - 1.5.5-5 - Fixed a buffer overflow in ATR decoder (CVE-2010-4531) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- References: [ 1 ] Bug #664999 - CVE-2010-4531 pcsc-lite: Stack-based buffer overflow in Answer-to-Reset (ATR) decoder https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=664999 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.
