Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the DSA-1982-1 advisory.
Checks if a vulnerable Linux Distribution Package version is present on the target host.
Several security vulnerabilities were discovered in OpenAFS, a
distributed file system.
OpenAFS is prone to denial of service from unserialized data access
because remote attackers can make a series of VOTE_Debug RPC calls
to crash a database server within the SVOTE_Debug RPC handler.
OpenAFS is prone to an information disclosure vulnerability because
uninitialized scalars are sent over the network to a peer.
OpenAFS is prone to information leakage upon certain error
conditions because uninitialized RPC output variables are sent over
the network to a peer.
