Description

Updated Cyrus-SASL packages are now available for Red Hat Power Tools 6.2. These packages fix a possible format-string vulnerability in the default logging callback function provided by libsasl.

The default logging callback function supplied by the Cyrus SASL library suffers from a format-string vulnerability. This function is used when a server which uses Cyrus SASL attempts to set or change a user's secrets. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2001-0869 to this issue.

Solution(s)

  • redhat-upgrade-cyrus-sasl

  • redhat-upgrade-cyrus-sasl-gssapi

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
