The Network Instruments file code could overrun a buffer.

CVE-2006-1935

The COPS dissector contains a potential buffer overflow.

CVE-2006-1936

The telnet dissector contains a buffer overflow.

CVE-2006-1937

Bugs in the SRVLOC and AIM dissector, and in the statistics counter could crash ethereal.

CVE-2006-1938

Null pointer dereferences in the SMB PIPE dissector and when reading a malformed Sniffer capture could crash ethereal.

CVE-2006-1939

Null pointer dereferences in the ASN.1, GSM SMS, RPC and ASN.1-based dissector and an invalid display filter could crash ethereal.

CVE-2006-1940

The SNDCP dissector could cause an unintended abortion.

For the old stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 0.9.4-1woody15.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 0.10.10-2sarge5.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your ethereal packages.

Severity: High
Title: X.Org: Buffer overflow in XRender extension
Date: May 02, 2006
Bugs: #130979
ID: 200605-02


Synopsis

A buffer overflow in the XRender extension potentially allows any X.Org user to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.

Background

X.Org is X.Org Foundation's public implementation of the X Window System.

Affected packages


     Package            /  Vulnerable  /                    Unaffected

  1  x11-base/xorg-x11     < 6.8.2-r7                      >= 6.8.2-r7

Description

X.Org miscalculates the size of a buffer in the XRender extension.

Impact

An X.Org user could exploit this issue to make the X server execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All X.Org users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=x11-base/xorg-x11-6.8.2-r7"

Severity: Normal
Title: ClamAV: Buffer overflow in Freshclam
Date: May 02, 2006
Bugs: #131791
ID: 200605-03


Synopsis

Freshclam is vulnerable to a buffer overflow that could lead to execution of arbitrary code.

Background

ClamAV is a GPL virus scanner. Freshclam is a utility to download virus signature updates.

Affected packages


     Package               /  Vulnerable  /                 Unaffected

  1  app-antivirus/clamav      < 0.88.2                      >= 0.88.2

Description

Ulf Harnhammar and an anonymous German researcher discovered that Freshclam fails to check the size of the header data returned by a webserver.

Impact

By enticing a user to connect to a malicious webserver an attacker could cause the execution of arbitrary code.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All ClamAV users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-antivirus/clamav-0.88.2"

Severity: Normal
Title: phpWebSite: Local file inclusion
Date: May 02, 2006
Bugs: #130295
ID: 200605-04


Synopsis

Remote attackers can include local files which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

Background

phpWebSite provides a complete web site content management system.

Affected packages


     Package              /  Vulnerable  /                  Unaffected

  1  www-apps/phpwebsite      < 0.10.2                       >= 0.10.2

Description

rgod has reported that the "hub_dir" parameter in "index.php" isn't properly verified. When "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled, this can be exploited to include arbitrary files from local ressources.

Impact

If "magic_quotes_gpc" is disabled, which is not the default on Gentoo Linux, a remote attacker could exploit this issue to include and execute PHP scripts from local ressources with the rights of the user running the web server, or to disclose sensitive information and potentially compromise a vulnerable system.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All phpWebSite users should upgrade to the latest available version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-apps/phpwebsite-0.10.2"

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:080
http://www.mandriva.com/security/


Package : clamav
Date : May 1, 2006
Affected: 10.2, 2006.0, Corporate 3.0


Problem Description:

Ulf Harnhammar discovered that the freshclam tool does not do a proper check for the size of header data received from a web server. This could potentially allow a specially prepared HTTP server to exploit freshclam clients connecting to a database mirror and causing a DoS.

The updated packages have been updated to Clamav 0.88.2 which corrects this problem.
