Description Henning Schmiedehausen 2002-03-19 05:31:45 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020206

Description of problem:
/usr/sbin/pppdump is statically linked to a vulnerable zlib 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. get the zlib scanner from Florian Weimer
2. /tmp/scanner.pl /usr/sbin/pppdump

Actual Results:  /usr/sbin/pppdump: zlib cplens table, little endian
/usr/sbin/pppdump: zlib cplext table (version 0.93 to 1.0.4)

Expected Results:  ppp should not be linked to a (stone age) zlib which is
vulnerable to the overflow bug

Summary     : The PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) daemon.
Description :
The ppp package contains the PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) daemon and
documentation for PPP support.  The PPP protocol provides a method for
transmitting datagrams over serial point-to-point links. PPP is
usually used to dial in to an ISP (Internet Service Provider) or other
organization over a modem and phone line.

Either this should be moved to a newer (supported) product or closed as fixed I
think? The ppp errata from RHL 7.2 does not have this problem if I'm not mistaken.

Issue affects Red Hat Linux 7.1
