Description


Updated freeradius2 packages that fix one security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

FreeRADIUS is a high-performance and highly configurable free Remote
Authentication Dial In User Service (RADIUS) server, designed to allow
centralized authentication and authorization for a network.

A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the way radiusd handled the
expiration date field in X.509 client certificates. A remote attacker could
possibly use this flaw to crash radiusd if it were configured to use the
certificate or TLS tunnelled authentication methods (such as EAP-TLS,
EAP-TTLS, and PEAP). (CVE-2012-3547)

Red Hat would like to thank Timo Warns of PRESENSE Technologies GmbH for
reporting this issue.

Users of FreeRADIUS are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch to correct this issue. After installing the
update, radiusd will be restarted automatically.
