| EnGarde Secure Linux Security Advisory March 21, 2003 |
| http://www.engardelinux.org/ ESA-20030321-010 |
| |
| Package: glibc |
| Summary: RPC XDR decoder vulnerability. |
+------------------------------------------------------------------------+

  EnGarde Secure Linux is a secure distribution of Linux that features   improved access control, host and network intrusion detection, Web   based secure remote management, e-commerce, and integrated open source   security tools.

OVERVIEW
- --------
  This update fixes an integer overflow in the xdrmem_getbytes() function   of glibc.

  The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has   assigned the name CAN-2003-0028 to this issue.

  All users are recommended to upgrade as soon as soon as possible.

SOLUTION
- --------
  Users of the EnGarde Professional edition can use the Guardian Digital   Secure Network to update their systems automatically.

  EnGarde Community users should upgrade to the most recent version   as outlined in this advisory. Updates may be obtained from:

    ftp://ftp.engardelinux.org/pub/engarde/stable/updates/     http://ftp.engardelinux.org/pub/engarde/stable/updates/

  Before upgrading the package, the machine must either:

  1. be booted into a "standard" kernel; or
  2. have LIDS disabled.

  To disable LIDS, execute the command:

    # /sbin/lidsadm -S -- -LIDS_GLOBAL

  To install the updated package, execute the command:

    # rpm -Uvh files

  You must now update the LIDS configuration by executing the command:

    # /usr/sbin/config_lids.pl

  To re-enable LIDS (if it was disabled), execute the command:

    # /sbin/lidsadm -S -- +LIDS_GLOBAL

  To verify the signatures of the updated packages, execute the command:

    # rpm -Kv files

UPDATED PACKAGES - ----------------
  These updated packages are for EnGarde Secure Linux Community   Edition.

  Source Packages:

    SRPMS/glibc-2.1.3-1.0.7.src.rpm
      MD5 Sum: 82227d98df4975ac5c60e0ac10914747
