CAN-2005-1194 Buffer overflow in the ieee_putascii() function
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:17 EST
There is a very obvious buffer overflow in ieee_putascii()
static void ieee_putascii(char *format, ...)
vsprintf(buffer, format, ap);
At the very least it should be using a vsnprintf.
This issue should also affect RHEL2.1 and RHEL3
Affects RHEL2.1, RHEL3, RHEL4. The fix is now applied for all the RHELs.
