Problem description

A problem was found in versions of improved mod_frontpage prior to 1.6.1 regarding a lack of boundary checks in fpexec.c. This means that the suid root binary is exploitable for buffer overflows. This could be exploited by remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on the server with superuser privileges. Although there are no known exploits available, if you use mod_frontpage you are strongly encouraged to upgrade. This update for Mandrake Linux has been completely reworked and is easier to configure and use, as well as supporting the new FrontPage 2002 extensions.
