Debian GNU/Linux Advisories: squirrelmail, kdenetwork

Debian Security Advisory DSA 191-2                     security@debian.org

Package        : squirrelmail
Vulnerability  : cross site scripting
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
BugTraq ID     : 5949
CVE ID         : CAN-2002-1131 CAN-2002-1132

The security update for Squirrelmail (DSA 191-1) unfortunately
introduced a bug in the options page.  This problem is fixed in
version 1.2.6-1.2 the current stable distribution (woody).  The
unstable distribution (sid) and the old stable distribution (potato)
were not affected by this.  For completeness please find below the
original security advisory:

   Several cross site scripting vulnerabilities have been found in
   squirrelmail, a feature-rich webmail package written in PHP4.  The
   Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) project identified the
   following vulnerabilities:

    1. CAN-2002-1131: User input is not always sanitized so execution
       of arbitrary code on a client computer is possible.  This can
       happen after following a malicious URL or by viewing a
       malicious addressbook entry.

    2. CAN-2002-1132: Another problem could make it possible for an
       attacker to gain sensitive information under some conditions.
       When a malformed argument is appended to a link, an error page
       will be generated which contains the absolute pathname of the
       script.  However, this information is available through the
       Contents file of the distribution anyway.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.

Package        : kdenetwork
Vulnerability  : buffer overflow
Problem-Type   : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id         : CAN-2002-1247

iDEFENSE reports a security vulnerability in the klisa package, that
provides a LAN information service similar to "Network Neighbourhood",
which was discovered by Texonet.  It is possible for a local attacker
to exploit a buffer overflow condition in resLISa, a restricted
version of KLISa.  The vulnerability exists in the parsing of the
LOGNAME environment variable, an overly long value will overwrite the
instruction pointer thereby allowing an attacker to seize control of
the executable.

This problem has been fixed in version 2.2.2-14.2 the current stable
distribution (woody) and in version 2.2.2-14.3 for the unstable
distribution (sid).  The old stable distribution (potato) is not
affected since it doesn't contain a kdenetwork package

We recommend that you upgrade your klisa package immediately.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages
