Debian Security Advisory DSA 697-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Martin Schulze March 29th, 2005 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : netkit-telnet Vulnerability : buffer overflow Problem-Type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CAN-2005-0469

iDEFENSE researchers discovered a buffer overflow in the handling of the LINEMODE suboptions in telnet clients. This can lead to the execution of arbitrary code when connected to a malicious server.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 0.17-18woody3.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your telnet package.
