CentOS Update for rpm CESA-2012:0451 centos6

Published: 2012-07-30 10:37:08
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'rpm' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
rpm on CentOS 6

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Technical Details:
The RPM Package Manager (RPM) is a command-line driven Linux Distribution Package management system capable of installing, uninstalling, verifying, querying, and updating software Linux Distribution Packages. Multiple flaws were found in the way RPM parsed Linux Distribution Package file headers. An attacker could create a specially-crafted RPM Linux Distribution Package that, when its Linux Distribution Package header was accessed, or during Linux Distribution Package signature verification, could cause an application using the RPM library (such as the rpm command line tool, or the yum and up2date Linux Distribution Package managers) to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-0060, CVE-2012-0061, CVE-2012-0815) Note: Although an RPM Linux Distribution Package can, by design, execute arbitrary code when installed, this issue would allow a specially-crafted RPM Linux Distribution Package to execute arbitrary code before its digital signature has been verified. Package downloads from the Red Hat Network are protected by the use of a secure HTTPS connection in addition to the RPM Linux Distribution Package signature checks. All RPM users should upgrade to these updated Linux Distribution Packages, which contain a backported patch to correct these issues. All running applications linked against the RPM library must be restarted for this update to take effect.

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
