The mipv6 daemon in UMIP 0.4 does not verify that netlink messages
originated in the kernel, which allows local users to spoof netlink
socket communication via a crafted unicast message.


The patch supplied by Sebastian Krahmer is here:

Alternative patches on umip.org are here:

http://www.umip.org/gitweb?p=umip.git;a=commitdiff;h=0e67a61ffd37cc4e3dfa8add137a5d6cd8963a8e

Either patch should address both this issue and CVE-2010-2523.

Comment 2 Vincent Danen 2010-07-13 22:09:30 UTC
Created mipv6-daemon tracking bugs for this issue

Affects: fedora-all [bug 614239]

Comment 3 Thomas Graf 2010-07-14 11:21:36 UTC
Moving to the umip.org git tree is probably the best and easiest solution to address these issues. They already fixed these bugs a while ago.

Comment 4 Vincent Danen 2010-07-14 15:13:43 UTC
Yes, I agree.  It looks like the umip.org git tree is more actively maintained and a lot more proactive.

Comment 5 Thomas Graf 2010-07-15 07:21:32 UTC
The switch to umip.org will take a while, the package would almost need to be recreated. So I'm checking in the security fixes for all stable branches first and after that get to work on switching to umip.org.

Comment 6 Tomas Hoger 2011-02-03 09:02:42 UTC
This is fixed in all current Fedora versions.  RHEL-6 packages were patched before GA.

Statement:

The mipv6-daemon packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 are not vulnerable to this issue, as they contain a backported patch correcting this flaw.
