Description

Updated pcsc-lite packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

PC/SC Lite provides a Windows SCard compatible interface for communicating with smart cards, smart card readers, and other security tokens.

Multiple buffer overflow flaws were discovered in the way the pcscd daemon, a resource manager that coordinates communications with smart card readers and smart cards connected to the system, handled client requests. A local user could create a specially crafted request that would cause the pcscd daemon to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2010-0407, CVE-2009-4901)

Users of pcsc-lite should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct these issues. After installing this update, the pcscd daemon will be restarted automatically.
