Debian Security Advisory DSA 556-2                     security () debian org

Package        : netkit-telnet
Vulnerability  : invalid free(3)
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: yes
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-0911
Debian Bug     : 273694

This is an update for DSA 556-1 which was intended to fix a denial of
service situation in netkit-telnet but didn't.  The update for
unstable did fix the problem.  For completeness below is the original
advisory text:

  Michal Zalewski discovered a bug in the netkit-telnet server (telnetd)
  whereby a remote attacker could cause the telnetd process to free an
  invalid pointer.  This causes the telnet server process to crash,
  leading to a straightforward denial of service (inetd will disable the
  service if telnetd is crashed repeatedly), or possibly the execution
  of arbitrary code with the privileges of the telnetd process (by
  default, the 'telnetd' user).

  For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
  version 0.17-26.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.17-18woody2.

We recommend that you upgrade your netkit-telnet-ssl package.
