CAN-2001-1413 Stack-based buffer overflow in the comprexx function
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:06:54 EST
A stack-based buffer overflow in the comprexx function for ncompress
4.2.4 and earlier exists.
When used in situations that cross security boundaries (such as FTP
server), may allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a
long filename argument.
This will be fixed in U6 as RHSA-2004:536
