    Max Vozeler noticed that yardradius, the YARD radius authentication and accounting server, contained a stack overflow similar to the one from radiusd which is referenced as CAN-2001-0534. This could lead to the execution of arbitrary code as root.

    Max Vozeler noticed that yardradius, the YARD radius authentication
    and accounting server, contained a stack overflow similar to the one
    from radiusd which is referenced as CAN-2001-0534.  This could lead to
    the execution of arbitrary code as root.
