Description

Updated iscsi-initiator-utils packages that fix a security flaw in open-iscsi are now available for CentOS Linux 5. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The iscsi package provides the server daemon for the iSCSI protocol, as well as the utility programs used to manage it. iSCSI is a protocol for distributed disk access using SCSI commands sent over Internet Protocol networks. Olaf Kirch discovered two flaws in open-iscsi. A local attacker could use these flaws to cause the server daemon to stop responding, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2007-3099, CVE-2007-3100). All users of open-iscsi should upgrade to this updated package which resolves these issues. Note: This issue did not affect CentOS Linux 2.1, 3, or 4. open-iscsi is available in CentOS Linux 5 as a Technology Preview.
