Subject:                OpenServer 5.0.6 OpenServer 5.0.7 : telnet client multiple issues
Advisory number:        SCOSA-2005.23
Issue date:             2005 May 17
Cross reference:        sr893213 fz531456 erg712802 CAN-2005-0469 CAN-2005-0468

1. Problem Description

        Buffer overflow in the slc_add_reply function in various
        BSD-based Telnet clients, when handling LINEMODE suboptions,
        allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a
        reply with a large number of Set Local Character (SLC)
        commands. 

        The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) 
        has assigned the name CAN-2005-0469 to this issue. 

        Heap-based buffer overflow in the env_opt_add function in telnet.c 
        for various BSD-based Telnet clients allows remote attackers to 
        execute arbitrary code via responses that contain a large number 
        of characters that require escaping, which consumers more memory 
        than allocated.

        The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
        has assigned the name CAN-2005-0468 to this issue.
