mer, 10/31/2007 - 13:00
The nfs-utils package had some issues with it's provided initscripts
including: a lack of dependency on portmap made the various services
start in an arbitary order prior to portmap starting, and parallel
execution of rpcidmapd and rpcgss led to a launch failure due to a
sunrpc module loading failure.

The updated packages correct these issues.

condition or possibly the execution of arbitrary code with the user's

Updated packages have been patched to prevent this issue.

MDKSA-2007:199: Updated phpMyAdmin packages fix multiple vulnerabilities

mar, 10/30/2007 - 19:00
A number of vulnerabilities and security-related issues have been fixed
in phpMyAdmin versions since the release. This update provides
version which is the latest stable release of phpMyAdmin.

Note that due to heavy configuration file changes, it may be necessary
to reconfigure phpMyAdmin. The configuration file is located in
/etc/phpMyAdmin/. In most cases, it should be sufficient so simply
replace config.default.php with config.default.php.rpmnew and make
whatever modifications are necessary.

MDKSA-2007:198: Updated util-linux packages fix vulnerability

mar, 10/30/2007 - 01:00
The mount and umount programs in util-linux called the setuid() and
setgid() functions in the wrong order and did not check the return
values, which could allow attackers to grain privileges via helper
applications such as mount.nfs.

Updated packages have been patched to fix this issue.

MDKSA-2007:197: Updated tar packages prevent buffer overflow

mar, 10/30/2007 - 01:00
A buffer overflow in GNU tar has unspecified attack vectors and impact,
resulting in a crashing stack.

Updated packages fix this issue.

MDKSA-2007:196: Updated kernel packages fix multiple vulnerabilities and bugs

mer, 10/24/2007 - 19:00
Some vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in the Linux
2.6 kernel:

The compat_sys_mount function in fs/compat.c allowed local users
to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and oops)
by mounting a smbfs file system in compatibility mode (CVE-2006-7203).

The nf_conntrack function in netfilter did not set nfctinfo during
reassembly of fragmented packets, which left the default value as
IP_CT_ESTABLISHED and could allow remote attackers to bypass certain
rulesets using IPv6 fragments (CVE-2007-1497).

A typo in the Linux kernel caused RTA_MAX to be used as an array size
instead of RTN_MAX, which lead to an out of bounds access by certain
functions (CVE-2007-2172).

The IPv6 protocol allowed remote attackers to cause a denial of
service via crafted IPv6 type 0 route headers that create network
amplification between two routers (CVE-2007-2242).

The random number feature did not properly seed pools when there was
no entropy, or used an incorrect cast when extracting entropy, which
could cause the random number generator to provide the same values
after reboots on systems without an entropy source (CVE-2007-2453).

A memory leak in the PPPoE socket implementation allowed local users
to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by creating a
socket using connect, and releasing it before the PPPIOCGCHAN ioctl
is initialized (CVE-2007-2525).

An integer underflow in the cpuset_tasks_read function, when the cpuset
filesystem is mounted, allowed local users to obtain kernel memory
contents by using a large offset when reading the /dev/cpuset/tasks
file (CVE-2007-2875).

The sctp_new function in netfilter allowed remote attackers to cause
a denial of service by causing certain invalid states that triggered
a NULL pointer dereference (CVE-2007-2876).

A stack-based buffer overflow in the random number generator could
allow local root users to cause a denial of service or gain privileges
by setting the default wakeup threshold to a value greater than the
output pool size (CVE-2007-3105).

The lcd_write function did not limit the amount of memory used by
a caller, which allows local users to cause a denial of service
(memory consumption) (CVE-2007-3513).

The Linux kernel allowed local users to send arbitrary signals
to a child process that is running at higher privileges by
causing a setuid-root parent process to die which delivered an
attacker-controlled parent process death signal (PR_SET_PDEATHSIG)

The aac_cfg_openm and aac_compat_ioctl functions in the SCSI layer
ioctl patch in aacraid did not check permissions for ioctls, which
might allow local users to cause a denial of service or gain privileges

The IA32 system call emulation functionality, when running on the
x86_64 architecture, did not zero extend the eax register after the
32bit entry path to ptrace is used, which could allow local users to
gain privileges by triggering an out-of-bounds access to the system
call table using the %RAX register (CVE-2007-4573).

In addition to these security fixes, other fixes have been included
such as:

- The 3w-9xxx module was updated to version, adding support
for 9650SE
- Fixed the build of e1000-ng
- Added NIC support for MCP55
- Added LSI Logic MegaRAID SAS 8300XLP support

MDKSA-2007:194: Updated libvorbis packages fix vulnerabilities

mer, 10/24/2007 - 19:00
More vulnerabilities in libvorbis were found that could be used to
cause an application linked to libvorbis to crash or execute arbitrary
code if used to open a carefully crafted OGG file.
