Mandrake Linux Advisories: glibc, tcl/tk

Sep 24, 2002, 00:59 (0 Talkback[s])
______________________________________________________________________

                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
______________________________________________________________________

Package name:           glibc
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2002:061
Date:                   September 23rd, 2002
Affected versions:      7.1, 7.2, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, Corporate Server 1.0.1,
                        Single Network Firewall 7.2
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 A heap buffer overflow exists in the XDR decoder in glibc version 2.2.5
 and earlier.  XDR is a mechanism for encoding data structures for use
 with RPC, which is derived from Sun's RPC implementation which is
 likewise vulnerable to a heap overflow.  Depending on the application,
 this vulnerability may be exploitable and could lead to arbitrary code
 execution.  Thanks to Solar Designer for the patches used to correct
 this vulnerability.

To upgrade automatically, use MandrakeUpdate.  The verification of md5
checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one 
of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".  A list of
FTP mirrors can be obtained from:

  http://www.mandrakesecure.net/en/ftp.php

Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
the downloaded package.  You can do this with the command:

  rpm --checksig <filename>

All packages are signed by MandrakeSoft for security.  You can obtain
the GPG public key of the Mandrake Linux Security Team from:

  https://www.mandrakesecure.net/RPM-GPG-KEYS

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to 
update.

                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
______________________________________________________________________

Package name:           tcl/tk
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2002:060
Date:                   September 23rd, 2002
Affected versions:      7.2, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, Single Network Firewall 7.2
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 Some problems were discovered with the Tcl/Tk development environment.
 The expect application would search for its libraries in /var/tmp prior
 to searching in other directories, which could allow a local user to
 gain root privilege by writing a trojan library and waiting for the
 root user to run the mkpasswd utility.  This is fixed in version 5.32
 of expect.  A similiar vulnerability has been fixed in the tcltk
 package which searched for its libraries in the current working
 directory prior to searching in other directories.  This could be
 used to execute arbitrary code by local users through the use of
 a trojan library.

To upgrade automatically, use MandrakeUpdate.  The verification of md5
checksums and GPG signatures is performed automatically for you.

If you want to upgrade manually, download the updated package from one 
of our FTP server mirrors and upgrade with "rpm -Fvh *.rpm".  A list of
FTP mirrors can be obtained from:

  http://www.mandrakesecure.net/en/ftp.php

Please verify the update prior to upgrading to ensure the integrity of
the downloaded package.  You can do this with the command:

  rpm --checksig <filename>

All packages are signed by MandrakeSoft for security.  You can obtain
the GPG public key of the Mandrake Linux Security Team from:

  https://www.mandrakesecure.net/RPM-GPG-KEYS

Please be aware that sometimes it takes the mirrors a few hours to 
update.
