Package        : open-iscsi
Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : local/remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-3099 CVE-2007-3100

Several local and remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in
open-iscsi, a transport-independent iSCSI implementation. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2007-3099

    Olaf Kirch discovered that due to a programming error access to the
    management interface socket was insufficiently protected, which allows
    denial of service.

CVE-2007-3100

    Olaf Kirch discovered that access to a semaphore used in the logging
    code was insufficiently protected, allowing denial of service.

The oldstable distribution (sarge) doesn't include open-iscsi.

For the stable distribution (etch) these problems have been fixed
in version 2.0.730-1etch1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.865-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your open-iscsi packages.


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

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