Subject:                Linux: RPC XDR buffer overflow
Advisory number:        CSSA-2002-055.0
Issue date:             2002 December 04
Cross reference:
______________________________________________________________________________


1. Problem Description

        The implementation of xdr_array can be tricked into writing
        beyond the buffers it allocated when deserializing the XDR stream.


2. Vulnerable Supported Versions

        System                          Package

3. Solution

        The proper solution is to install the latest packages. Many
        customers find it easier to use the Caldera System Updater, called
        cupdate (or kcupdate under the KDE environment), to update these
        packages rather than downloading and installing them by hand.
