1 CVE-2013-4342 264 +Priv 2013-10-09 2013-10-10
7.6
None Remote High Not required Complete Complete Complete
xinetd does not enforce the user and group configuration directives for TCPMUX services, which causes these services to be run as root and makes it easier for remote attackers to gain privileges by leveraging another vulnerability in a service.
2 CVE-2012-0862 20 Bypass 2012-06-04 2013-10-10
4.3
None Remote Medium Not required Partial None None
builtins.c in Xinetd before 2.3.15 does not check the service type when the tcpmux-server service is enabled, which exposes all enabled services and allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via a request to tcpmux port 1.
3 CVE-2003-0211 DoS 2003-05-05 2008-09-10
5.0
None Remote Low Not required None None Partial
Memory leak in xinetd 2.3.10 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a large number of rejected connections.
4 CVE-2002-0871 DoS 2002-09-05 2008-09-10
2.1
None Local Low Not required None None Partial
xinetd 2.3.4 leaks file descriptors for the signal pipe to services that are launched by xinetd, which could allow those services to cause a denial of service via the pipe.
5 CVE-2001-1389 DoS Exec Code Overflow 2001-08-29 2008-09-10
7.5
User Remote Low Not required Partial Partial Partial
Multiple vulnerabilities in xinetd 2.3.0 and earlier, and additional variants until 2.3.3, may allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code, primarily via buffer overflows or improper NULL termination.
6 CVE-2001-1322 2001-07-10 2008-09-10
3.6
None Local Low Not required Partial Partial None
xinetd 2.1.8 and earlier runs with a default umask of 0, which could allow local users to read or modify files that are created by an application that runs under xinetd but does not set its own safe umask.
7 CVE-2001-0825 Exec Code Overflow 2001-12-06 2008-09-10
10.0
Admin Remote Low Not required Complete Complete Complete
Buffer overflow in internal string handling routines of xinetd before 2.1.8.8 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands via a length argument of zero or less, which disables the length check.
