Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2020:0630 :

An update for ppp is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

The ppp packages contain the Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) daemon and documentation for PPP support. The PPP protocol provides a method for transmitting datagrams over serial point-to-point links. PPP is usually used to dial in to an Internet Service Provider (ISP) or other organization over a modem and phone line.

Security Fix(es) :

  • ppp: Buffer overflow in the eap_request and eap_response functions in eap.c (CVE-2020-8597)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS score, acknowledgments, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in the References section.
