Christey" <coley@...us.mitre.org> CC: oss-security <oss-security@...ts.openwall.com> Subject: CVE Request -- OpenVAS Manager v2.0.3 Hello Josh, Steve, vendors, based on:  http://lists.wald.intevation.org/pipermail/openvas-announce/2011-April/000120.html This release fixes a severe security issue discovered after the release of openvas-manager 2.0.2. By crafting a special report format plugin, and knowing about the operating system on which OpenVAS Manager is running, a rogue user was able to upload the plugin and execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the OpenVAS Manager. Could you allocate a CVE id for this? Thanks && Regards, Jan. -- Jan iankko Lieskovsky / Red Hat Security Response Team
