    Synopsis:          Moderate: freeradius security update
    Advisory ID:       RHSA-2005:524-01
    Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-524.html
    Issue date:        2005-06-23
    Updated on:        2005-06-23
    Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
    CVE Names:         CAN-2005-1454 CAN-2005-1455
    - ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    1. Summary:
    
    Updated freeradius packages that fix a buffer overflow and possible SQL
    injection attacks in the sql module are now available.
    
    This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
    Hat Security Response Team.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 3 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 3 - i386, ia64, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
    
    3. Problem description:
    
    FreeRADIUS is a high-performance and highly configurable free RADIUS server
    designed to allow centralized authentication and authorization for a network.
    
    A buffer overflow bug was found in the way FreeRADIUS escapes data in an
    SQL query. An attacker may be able to crash FreeRADIUS if they cause
    FreeRADIUS to escape a string containing three or less characters. The
    Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned
    the name CAN-2005-1454 to this issue.
    
    Additionally a bug was found in the way FreeRADIUS escapes SQL data. It is
    possible that an authenticated user could execute arbitrary SQL queries by
    sending a specially crafted request to FreeRADIUS. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name
    CAN-2005-1455 to this issue.
    
    Users of FreeRADIUS should update to these erratum packages, which contain
    backported patches and are not vulnerable to these issues.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
    errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
    Network to download and update your packages.  To launch the Red Hat
    Update Agent, use the following command:
    
        up2date
    
    For information on how to install packages manually, refer to the
    following Web page for the System Administration or Customization
    guide specific to your system:
