Description Mark J. Cox 2004-01-19 10:27:42 EST
A buffer overflow has been found in Midnight Commander's virtual
filesystem code. Specifically, a stack-based buffer overflow in
vfs_s_resolve_symlink of vfs/direntry.c allows remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code during symlink conversion.

        Affects: 2.1AS 2.1AW 2.1ES 2.1WS
        Affects: 3ES 3AW 3WS

Erratum in progress.
