Vulnerability Scan Summary
Check for the version of the cyrus-sasl package
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test
The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2004:106 (cyrus-sasl).
A vulnerability was discovered in the libsasl library of cyrus-sasl. libsasl
honors the SASL_PATH environment variable blindly, which could allow a local
user to create a malicious 'library' that would get executed with the effective
ID of SASL when anything calls libsasl.
The provided packages are patched to protect against this vulnerability.
