Cistron Information for VU#936683

Multiple implementations of the RADIUS protocol do not adequately validate the vendor-length of the vendor-specific attributes



Vendor Statement

Cistron Radius up to and including 1.6.5 is vulnerable. Today [2/6/02] I have released version 1.6.6, which also fixes (VU#589523). The homepage is on which you can also find the ChangeLog. An announcement to the cistron-radius mailinglist was also made today.

So everybody should upgrade to 1.6.6.
