Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2013:169 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/


Package : socat Date : May 29, 2013 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0


Problem Description:

Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in socat:

A heap based buffer overflow vulnerability has been found with data that happens to be output on the READLINE address. Successful exploitation may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the socat process (CVE-2012-0219).

Under certain circumstances an FD leak occurs and can be misused for denial of service attacks against socat running in server mode (CVE-2013-3571).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
