Description Josh Bressers 2005-05-09 07:59:23 EDT
It turns out that this is a potential Remote DoS bug resulting from not
checking a pointer for non-NULL before passing it to strncmp which
results in a crash. This can be triggered by a remote client sending an
SLP message with an empty body.

The fix for this is in CVS:
Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2005-05-09 08:00:07 EDT
This issue should also affect RHEL3 (maybe RHEL2.1, it needs investigation).
Comment 2 Mark J. Cox 2005-05-11 04:03:36 EDT
public, removing embargo
