 Package : socat
 Date    : May 29, 2013
 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in socat:
 
 A heap based buffer overflow vulnerability has been found with
 data that happens to be output on the READLINE address. Successful
 exploitation may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code with
 the privileges of the socat process (CVE-2012-0219).
 
 Under certain circumstances an FD leak occurs and can be misused
 for denial of service attacks against socat running in server mode
 (CVE-2013-3571).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
