Debian Security Advisory DSA 2533-1 (pcp)
The remote host is missing an update to pcp announced via advisory DSA 2533-1.
It was discovered that Performance Co-Pilot (pcp), a framework for performance monitoring, contains several vulnerabilities. CVE-2012-3418 Multiple buffer overflows in the PCP protocol decoders can cause PCP clients and servers to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code while processing crafted PDUs. CVE-2012-3419 The linux PMDA used by the pmcd daemon discloses sensitive information from the /proc file system to unauthenticated clients. CVE-2012-3420 Multiple memory leaks processing crafted requests can cause pmcd to consume large amounts of memory and eventually crash. CVE-2012-3421 Incorrect event-driven programming allows malicious clients to prevent other clients from accessing the pmcd daemon. To address the information disclosure vulnerability, CVE-2012-3419, a new proc PMDA was introduced, which is disabled by default. If you need access to this information, you need to enable the proc PMDA. For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 3.3.3-squeeze2. For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 3.6.5.
We recommend that you upgrade your pcp packages.
