fail2ban: denial of service

Package(s):fail2ban CVE #(s):CVE-2006-6302
Created:February 16, 2007 Updated:July 30, 2007
Description: fail2ban 0.7.4 and earlier does not properly parse sshd logs file, which allows remote attackers to add arbitrary hosts to the /etc/hosts.deny file and cause a denial of service by adding arbitrary IP addresses to the sshd log file, as demonstrated by logging in to ssh using a login name containing certain strings with an IP address.

Whee, reported this class of problem what, a year ago?

And it was fixed in one distro and not the other? :-(

fail2ban >= 0.6.2 is unaffected according to the notice and 0.6.2-3 has been available on Fedora Core from Jan 5.
