Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory


Package name: screen
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2003:113
Date: December 8th, 2003
Affected versions: 9.0, 9.1, 9.2, Corporate Server 2.1, Multi Network Firewall 8.2

Problem Description:

A vulnerability was discovered and fixed in screen by Timo Sirainen who found an exploitable buffer overflow that allowed privilege escalation. This vulnerability also has the potential to allow attackers to gain control of another user's screen session. The ability to exploit is not trivial and requires approximately 2GB of data to be transferred in order to do so.

Updated packages are available that fix the vulnerability.
