Description Piotr Hosowicz 2008-06-13 11:57:53 UTC
Description of problem: gnokii-0.6.14-3 crashed unexpectedly while trying to identify, download SMSes or phonebook, I can't remember, unfotunately I didn't make script log or something. My phone is Nokia 6210, I was connecting via IrDA dongle, XTNDAccess, recognized as far as I know as Activesys. gnokii crashed with segmentation fault . My solution was to uninstall gnokii RPM with --nodeps, then build latest gnokii form source with ./configure --prefix=/usr . Now gnokii works fine and it is far newer version - 0.6.25 . I think that this package needs update. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnokii-0.6.14-3 How reproducible: I don't know if the problem is phone-specific, dongle-specific or what. The hardware is described above. Segfault occurred while taking some very ordinary action - backing up SMSes / phonebook or even --identify, I can't remember. Steps to Reproduce: see above Actual results: segmenation fault Expected results: Backup og SMSes / phone book / identification of the phone. Additional info: # uname -a Linux **** 22.214.171.124-88.fc7 #1 SMP Thu May 15 00:35:10 EDT 2008 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux # cat /etc/fedora-release Fedora release 7 (Moonshine) # rpm -q glibc glibc-2.6-4 As I can imagine that attacker knows that the victim is regularly making SMS backups with gnokii and can send some malicious SMS to the phone exploiting segfault - I mark it as security related.

Fedora 7 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on June 13, 2008. Fedora 7 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
