Problem description

The SuSE security team discovered two vulnerabilities in the KDE lanbrowsing service during an audit. The LISa network daemon and "reslisa", a restricted version of LISa are used to identify servers on the local network by using the URL type "lan://" and "rlan://" respectively. A buffer overflow was discovered in the lisa daemon that can be exploited by an attacker on the local network to obtain root privilege on a machine running the lisa daemon. Another buffer overflow was found in the lan:// URL handler, which can be exploited by a remote attacker to gain access to the victim user's account. Only Mandrake Linux 9.0 comes with the LISa network daemon; all previous versions do not contain the network daemon and are as such not vulnerable.
