Summary

The remote host is missing an update to ocsinventory-agent announced via advisory DSA 1828-1.

Insight

Insight

It was discovered that the ocsinventory-agent which is part of the ocsinventory suite, a hardware and software configuration indexing service, is prone to an insecure perl module search path. As the agent is started via cron and the current directory (/ in this case) is included in the default perl module path the agent scans every directory on the system for its perl modules. This enables an attacker to execute arbitrary code via a crafted ocsinventory-agent perl module placed on the system. The oldstable distribution (etch) does not contain ocsinventory-agent. For the stable distribution (lenny), this problem has been fixed in version 1:0.0.9.2repack1-4lenny1. For the testing distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 1:0.0.9.2repack1-5 For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1:0.0.9.2repack1-5. We recommend that you upgrade your ocsinventory-agent packages.
