 Date    : May 16, 2008
 Affected: 2007.1, 2008.0, 2008.1, Corporate 4.0

 Problem Description:
 
 Several vulnerabilities were discovered in rdesktop, a Remote Desktop
 Protocol client.
 
 An integer underflow vulnerability allowed attackers to cause a
 denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code with
 the privileges of the logged-in user (CVE-2008-1801).
 
 A buffer overflow vulnerability allowed attackers to execute arbitrary
 code with the privileges of the logged-in user (CVE-2008-1802).
 
 An integer signedness vulnerability allowed attackers to
 execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the logged-in user
 (CVE-2008-1803).
 
 In order for these vulnerabilities to be exploited, an attacker must
 persuade a targeted user to connect to a malicious RDP server.
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
