Subject:        [SECURITY] [DSA-091-1] OpenSSH UseLogin vulnerability
Date:   05 Dec 2001 15:33:57 +0100      


Package        : ssh
Problem type   : influencing login 
Debian-specific: no

If the UseLogin feature is enabled in for ssh local users could
pass environment variables (including variables like LD_PRELOAD)
to the login process. This has been fixed by not copying the
environment of UseLogin is enabled.

Please note that the default configuration for Debian does not
have the UseLogin enabled.

This has been fixed in version 1:1.2.3-9.4.

Subject:        [SECURITY] [DSA-089-1] several problems in icecast-server
Date:   05 Dec 2001 12:32:52 +0100      


Package        : icecast-server
Problem type   : remote root exploit (and others)
Debian-specific: no

The icecast-server (a streaming music server) package as distributed
in Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 has several security problems:

* if a client added a / after the filename of a file to be downloaded
  the server would crash
* by escaping dots as %2E it was possible to circumvent security measures
  and download arbitrary files
* there were several buffer overflows that could be exploited to
  gain root access

These have been fixed in version 1.3.10-1, and we strongly recommend
that you upgrade your icecast-server package immediately.

Subject:        [SECURITY] [DSA-088-1] improper character escaping in fml
Date:   05 Dec 2001 12:30:38 +0100      


Package        : fml
Problem type   : improper character escaping
Debian-specific: no

The fml (a mailing list package) as distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.2
suffers from a cross-site scripting problem. When generating index
pages for list archives the `<' and `>' characters were not properly
escaped for subjects.

This has been fixed in version 3.0+beta.20000106-5, and we recommend
that you upgrade your fml package to that version. Upgrading will
automatically regenerate the index pages.
