Doc Text:
collectd contains an infinite loop due to how the parse_packet() and parse_part_sign_sha256() functions interact. If an instance of collectd is configured with "SecurityLevel None" and empty "AuthFile" options, an attacker can send crafted UDP packets that trigger the infinite loop, causing a denial of service.

Description Andrej Nemec 2017-04-06 11:55:38 UTC
Incorrect interaction of the parse_packet() and parse_part_sign_sha256() functions in network.c in collectd allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) of a collectd instance (configured with "SecurityLevel None" and with empty "AuthFile" options) via a crafted UDP packet.

Comment 3 Matthias Runge 2017-04-27 12:07:29 UTC
can we please get a tracking bug for collectd in osp optools? I've already built it on CentOS Opstools SIG

and http://cbs.centos.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=17012

Comment 4 Sandro Bonazzola 2017-04-28 06:32:31 UTC
Bronce, https://mojo.redhat.com/docs/DOC-1100973 is not complete, missing the Build Strategy. https://errata.devel.redhat.com/advisory/25569 is not marked as multi product errata so we need a tracking bug for RHV 4.1 as well.

Comment 5 Sandro Bonazzola 2017-04-28 13:10:31 UTC
Here's the errata for collectd to be shipped in 4.1.z: https://errata.devel.redhat.com/advisory/28330
collectd-5.7.1-3.el7 ready on Tag: rhlog-1.0-rhel-7-candidate
it required also:
riemann-c-client-1.6.1-4.el7 ready on Tag: rhlog-1.0-rhel-7-candidate
