Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2013-03-06 09:08:17 UTC
From ${URL} :

Some vulnerabilities have been reported in OpenAFS, which can be exploited by malicious users to compromise a vulnerable system and by malicious people to cause a DoS 
(Denial of Service).

1) Some errors when handling an ACL entry can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow via a specially crafted ACL entry.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow the execution of arbitrary code, but requires the permission to create ACLs.

2) An integer overflow error when handling IdToName RPC related to a ptserver can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow and crash the ptserver via a specially crafted 
IdToName RPC with a large payload.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 1.6.2.

Update to version 1.6.2 or later or apply patch (please see the vendor's advisories for details).

CVE-2013-1795 (
  Integer overflow in ptserver in OpenAFS before 1.6.2 allows remote attackers
  to cause a denial of service (crash) via a large list from the IdToName RPC,
  which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.

CVE-2013-1794 (
  Buffer overflow in certain client utilities in OpenAFS before 1.6.2 allows
  remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly
  execute arbitrary code via a long fileserver ACL entry.
