Debian Security Advisory DSA 678-1                                        Martin Schulze
February 11th, 2005

Package        : netkit-rwho
Vulnerability  : missing input validation
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CAN-2004-1180

"Vlad902" discovered a vulnerability in the rwhod program that can be
used to crash the listening process.  The broadcasting one is
unaffected.  This vulnerability only affects little endian
architectures (i.e. on Debian: alpha, arm, alpha, ia64, i386, mipsel
and s390).

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.17-4woody2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
version 0.17-8.

We recommend that you upgrade your rwhod package.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
