Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name: mgetty
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2003:053
Date: May 6th, 2003

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

Problem Description:

Two vulnerabilities were discovered in mgetty versions prior to 1.1.29.
An internal buffer could be overflowed if the caller name reported by
the modem, via Caller ID information, was too long. As well, the
faxspool script that comes with mgetty used a simple permissions scheme
to allow or deny fax transmission privileges. Because the spooling
directory used for outgoing faxes was world-writeable, this scheme was
easily circumvented.
