Gentoo Linux Security Advisory GLSA 200511-13

Severity: Normal
Title: Sylpheed, Sylpheed-Claws: Buffer overflow in LDIF importer
Date: November 15, 2005
Bugs: #111853
ID: 200511-13


Sylpheed and Sylpheed-Claws contain a buffer overflow vulnerability which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.


Sylpheed is a lightweight email client and newsreader. Sylpheed-Claws is a 'bleeding edge' version of Sylpheed. They both support the import of address books in LDIF (Lightweight Directory Interchange Format).

Affected packages

     Package                     /  Vulnerable  /           Unaffected

1 mail-client/sylpheed < 2.0.4 >= 2.0.4 2 mail-client/sylpheed-claws < 1.0.5-r1 >= 1.0.5-r1 ------------------------------------------------------------------- 2 affected packages on all of their supported architectures.


Colin Leroy reported buffer overflow vulnerabilities in Sylpheed and Sylpheed-Claws. The LDIF importer uses a fixed length buffer to store data of variable length. Two similar problems exist also in the Mutt and Pine addressbook importers of Sylpheed-Claws.


By convincing a user to import a specially-crafted LDIF file into the address book, a remote attacker could cause the program to crash, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the software.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All Sylpheed users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=mail-client/sylpheed-2.0.4"

All Sylpheed-Claws users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=mail-client/sylpheed-claws-1.0.5-r1"

Gentoo Linux Security Advisory GLSA 200511-14

Severity: Normal
Title: GTK+ 2, GdkPixbuf: Multiple XPM decoding vulnerabilities
Date: November 16, 2005
Bugs: #112608
ID: 200511-14


The GdkPixbuf library, that is also included in GTK+ 2, contains vulnerabilities that could lead to a Denial of Service or the execution of arbitrary code.


GTK+ (the GIMP Toolkit) is a toolkit for creating graphical user interfaces. The GdkPixbuf library provides facilities for image handling. It is available as a standalone library and also packaged with GTK+ 2.

Affected packages

     Package                /   Vulnerable   /              Unaffected

1 x11-libs/gtk+ < 2.8.6-r1 >= 2.8.6-r1 *>= 2.6.10-r1 < 2.0 2 media-libs/gdk-pixbuf < 0.22.0-r5 >= 0.22.0-r5 ------------------------------------------------------------------- 2 affected packages on all of their supported architectures.


iDEFENSE reported a possible heap overflow in the XPM loader (CVE-2005-3186). Upon further inspection, Ludwig Nussel discovered two additional issues in the XPM processing functions : an integer overflow (CVE-2005-2976) that affects only gdk-pixbuf, and an infinite loop (CVE-2005-2975).


Using a specially crafted XPM image an attacker could cause an affected application to enter an infinite loop or trigger the overflows, potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code.


There is no known workaround at this time.


All GTK+ 2 users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose x11-libs/gtk+

All GdkPixbuf users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=media-libs/gdk-pixbuf-0.22.0-r5"


[ 1 ] CVE-2005-2975

[ 2 ] CVE-2005-2976

[ 3 ] CVE-2005-3186

Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2005:212

Package : egroupware
Date : November 16, 2005
Affected: Corporate 3.0

Problem Description:

Egroupware contains embedded copies of several php based projects, including phpldapadmin and phpsysinfo.

Phpldapadmin before 0.9.6c allows remote attackers to gain anonymous access to the LDAP server, even when disable_anon_bind is set, via an HTTP request to login.php with the anonymous_bind parameter set. (CAN-2005-2654)

Directory traversal vulnerability in welcome.php in phpLDAPadmin 0.9.6 and 0.9.7 allows remote attackers to read arbitrary files via a .. (dot dot) in the custom_welcome_page parameter. (CAN-2005-2792)

PHP remote code injection vulnerability in welcome.php in phpLDAPadmin 0.9.6 and 0.9.7 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary PHP code via the custom_welcome_page parameter. (CAN-2005-2793)

Maksymilian Arciemowicz discovered several cross site scripting issues in phpsysinfo, a PHP based host information application. (CAN-2005-0869, 0870)

Christopher Kunz discovered that local variables in phpsysinfo get overwritten unconditionally and are trusted later, which could lead to the inclusion of arbitrary files. (CAN-2005-3347)

Christopher Kunz discovered that user-supplied input in phpsysinfo is used unsanitised, causing a HTTP Response splitting problem. (CAN-2005-3348)

The updated packages have new versions of these subsystems to correct these issues.

The image loading library of the gdk-pixbug/gtk2 package is vulnerable to several security-related bugs. This makes every application (mostly GNOME applications) which is linked against this library vulnerable too.

A carefully crafted XPM file can be used to execute arbitrary code while processing the image file. (CVE-2005-3186)

Additionally Ludwig Nussel from the SuSE Security-Team discovered an integer overflow bug that can be used to execute arbitray code too (CVE-2005-2976), and an infinite loop which leads to a denial-of-service bug. (CVE-2005-2975)

2) Solution or Work-Around


3) Special Instructions and Notes

Please restart your system to make the update completely effective.

4) Package Location and Checksums

The preferred method for installing security updates is to use the YaST Online Update (YOU) tool. YOU detects which updates are required and automatically performs the necessary steps to verify and install them. Alternatively, download the update packages for your distribution manually and verify their integrity by the methods listed in Section 6 of this announcement. Then install the packages using the command

rpm -Fhv <file.rpm>

to apply the update, replacing <file.rpm> with the filename of the downloaded RPM package.

Our maintenance customers are notified individually. The packages are offered for installation from the maintenance web:

5) Pending Vulnerabilities, Solutions, and Work-Arounds:

  • See SUSE Security Summary Report

6) Authenticity Verification and Additional Information
  • Announcement authenticity verification:

    SUSE security announcements are published via mailing lists and on Web sites. The authenticity and integrity of a SUSE security announcement is guaranteed by a cryptographic signature in each announcement. All SUSE security announcements are published with a valid signature.

    To verify the signature of the announcement, save it as text into a file and run the command

    gpg --verify <file>

    replacing <file> with the name of the file where you saved the announcement. The output for a valid signature looks like:

    gpg: Signature made <DATE> using RSA key ID 3D25D3D9
    gpg: Good signature from "SuSE Security Team <>"

    where <DATE> is replaced by the date the document was signed.

    If the security team's key is not contained in your key ring, you can import it from the first installation CD. To import the key, use the command

    gpg --import gpg-pubkey-3d25d3d9-36e12d04.asc

  • Package authenticity verification:

    SUSE update packages are available on many mirror FTP servers all over the world. While this service is considered valuable and important to the free and open source software community, the authenticity and the integrity of a package needs to be verified to ensure that it has not been tampered with.

    There are two verification methods that can be used independently from each other to prove the authenticity of a downloaded file or RPM package:

    1. Using the internal gpg signatures of the rpm package
    2. MD5 checksums as provided in this announcement
    1. The internal rpm package signatures provide an easy way to verify the authenticity of an RPM package. Use the command

      rpm -v --checksig <file.rpm>

      to verify the signature of the package, replacing <file.rpm> with the filename of the RPM package downloaded. The package is unmodified if it contains a valid signature from with the key ID 9C800ACA. This key is automatically imported into the RPM database (on RPMv4-based distributions) and the gpg key ring of 'root' during installation. You can also find it on the first installation CD and at the end of this announcement.

    2. If you need an alternative means of verification, use the md5sum

      command to verify the authenticity of the packages. Execute the command

      md5sum <filename.rpm>

      after you downloaded the file from a SUSE FTP server or its mirrors. Then compare the resulting md5sum with the one that is listed in the SUSE security announcement. Because the announcement containing the checksums is cryptographically signed (by, the checksums show proof of the authenticity of the package if the signature of the announcement is valid. Note that the md5 sums published in the SUSE Security Announcements are valid for the respective packages only. Newer versions of these packages cannot be verified.
