Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200601-03 (HylaFAX: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Patrice Fournier discovered that HylaFAX runs the notify script on     untrusted user input. Furthermore, users can log in without a password     when HylaFAX is installed with the pam USE-flag disabled.

Impact :

An attacker could exploit the input validation vulnerability to     run arbitrary code as the user running HylaFAX, which is usually uucp.
The password vulnerability could be exploited to log in without proper     user credentials.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
