===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-237-1           January 06, 2006
nbd vulnerability
CVE-2005-3354
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)

The following packages are affected:

nbd-server

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 1:2.7.4-1ubuntu0.1.  In general, a standard system upgrade is
sufficient to effect the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Kurt Fitzner discovered that the NBD (network block device) server did
not correctly verify the maximum size of request packets. By sending
specially crafted large request packets, a remote attacker who is
allowed to access the server could exploit this to execute arbitrary
code with root privileges.
