Debian Linux Security Advisory 2546-1 - Timo Warns discovered that the EAP-TLS handling of freeradius, a high-performance and highly configurable RADIUS server, is not properly performing length checks on user-supplied input before copying to a local stack buffer. As a result, an unauthenticated attacker can exploit this flaw to crash the daemon or execute arbitrary code via crafted certificates.

Timo Warns discovered that the EAP-TLS handling of freeradius, a
high-performance and highly configurable RADIUS server, is not properly

flaw to crash the daemon or execute arbitrary code via crafted
certificates.

version 2.1.10+dfsg-2+squeeze1.
