Debian Security Advisory DSA 244-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze January 27th, 2003 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : noffle Vulnerability : buffer overflows Problem-Type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE Id : CAN-2003-0037

Dan Jacobson noticed a problem in noffle, an offline news server, that leads to a segmentation fault. It is not yet clear whether this problem is exploitable. However, if it is, a remote attacker could trigger arbitrary code execution under the user that calls noffle, probably news.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.1-1.1.

The old stable distribution (potato) does not contain a noffle package.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 1.1.2-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your noffle package.
