DESCRIPTION
 Cistron RADIUS is an authentication and accounting server for
 terminal servers that speak the RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial In
 User Service) protocol.
 
 Alan DeKok reported[1] some vulnerabilities in multiple RADIUS server
 implementations (including radius-cistron).
 
 radius-cistron prior to 1.6.6 was vulnerable to:
 
 - A buffer overflow in a message digest calculation[2] that could let
 an attacker to sucessfully run a Deny of Service (DoS) attack againt
 the server. If the attacker also knows the shared secret (discovering
 it is not a trivial task), there's a possibility to exploit this
 vulnerability to execute arbitrary code in the remote machine (with
 root privileges).
 
 - A failure to check the vendor-length of vendor-specific attributes,
 also possibiliting a Denial of Service attack against RADIUS
 servers.
 
 There's a complete advisory[3] with more information available from
 CERT® addressing these vulnerabilities.


SOLUTION
 All radius-cistron users should upgrade. This update will
 automatically restart the service if it's running.
