                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           snort
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:029
Date:                   March 6th, 2003

Affected versions:      8.2, 9.0, Corporate Server 2.1,
                        Multi Network Firewall 8.2
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A buffer overflow was discovered in the snort RPC normalization 
 routines by ISS-XForce which can cause snort to execute arbitrary
 code embedded within sniffed network packets.  The rpc_decode
 preprocessor is enabled by default.  The snort developers have
 released version 1.9.1 to correct this behaviour; snort versions
 from 1.8 up to 1.9.0 are vulnerable.
 
 For those unable to upgrade, you can disable the rpc_decode
 preprocessor by commenting out the line (place a "#" character at the
 beginning of the line) that enables it in your snort.conf file:
 
   preprocessor rpc_decode
