Fedora Core 1 Update: freeradius-0.9.3-1.1



---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-076
2004-02-16
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : freeradius
Version     : 0.9.3
Release     : 1.1
Summary     : High-performance and highly configurable free RADIUS server.
Description :
The FreeRADIUS Server Project is a high performance and highly configurable
GPL'd free RADIUS server. The server is similar in some respects to
Livingston's 2.0 server.  While FreeRADIUS started as a variant of the
Cistron RADIUS server, they don't share a lot in common any more. It now has
many more features than Cistron or Livingston, and is much more configurable.

FreeRADIUS is an Internet authentication daemon, which implements the RADIUS
protocol, as defined in RFC 2865 (and others). It allows Network Access
Servers (NAS boxes) to perform authentication for dial-up users. There are
also RADIUS clients available for Web servers, firewalls, Unix logins, and
more.  Using RADIUS allows authentication and authorization for a network to
be centralized, and minimizes the amount of re-configuration which has to be
done when adding or deleting new users.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

This version corrects a flaw in 0.9.2 (and all earlier versions of the
server) which may allow an attacker to DoS the server.
The bug does not look to be easily exploitable, as it overwrites the heap
(not the stack), and any exploit code must be in the form of a valid RADIUS
packet.
