Issue date: 2005-12-06
Updated on: 2005-12-06
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names: CVE-2005-2933


1. Summary:

Updated libc-client packages that fix a buffer overflow issue are now available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

C-client is a common API for accessing mailboxes.

A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the way C-client parses user supplied mailboxes. If an authenticated user requests a specially crafted mailbox name, it may be possible to execute arbitrary code on a server that uses C-client to access mailboxes. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2005-2933 to this issue.

All users of libc-client should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch that resolves this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

3. Problem description:

The imap package provides server daemons for both the IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) and POP (Post Office Protocol) mail access protocols.

A buffer overflow flaw was discovered in the way the c-client library parses user supplied mailboxes. If an authenticated user requests a specially crafted mailbox name, it may be possible to execute arbitrary code on a server that uses the library. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the name CVE-2005-2933 to this issue.

All users of imap should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch and are not vulnerable to this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate RPMs being upgraded on your system.

1) Problem Description and Brief Discussion

This kernel update for SUSE Linux 10.0 contains fixes for XEN, various security fixes and bug fixes.

CVE-200n-nnnn numbers refer to Mitre CVE IDs (http://cve.mitre.org/).

This update includes a more recent snapshot of the upcoming XEN 3.0. Many bugs have been fixed. Stability for x86_64 has been improved. Stability has been improved for SMP, and now both i586 and x86_64 kernels are built with SMP support.

This update contains the following security fixes:

  • CVE-2005-3783: A check in ptrace(2) handling that finds out if a process is attaching to itself was incorrect and could be used by a local attacker to crash the machine.
  • CVE-2005-3784: A check in reaping of terminating child processes did not consider ptrace(2) attached processes and would leave a ptrace reference dangling. This could lead to a local user being able to crash the machine.
  • CVE-2005-3271: A task leak problem when releasing POSIX timers was fixed. This could lead to local users causing a local denial of service by exhausting system memory.
  • CVE-2005-3805: A locking problem in POSIX timer handling could be used by a local attacker on a SMP system to deadlock the machine.
  • CVE-2005-3181: A problem in the Linux auditing code could lead to a memory leak which finally could exhaust system memory of a machine.
  • CVE-2005-2973: An infinite loop in the IPv6 UDP loopback handling can be easily triggered by a local user and lead to a denial of service.
  • CVE-2005-3806: A bug in IPv6 flow label handling code could be used by a local attacker to free non-allocated memory and in turn corrupt kernel memory and likely crash the machine.
  • CVE-2005-3807: A memory kernel leak in VFS lease handling can exhaust the machine memory and so cause a local denial of service. This is seen in regular Samba use and could also be triggered by local attackers.
  • CVE-2005-3055: Unplugging an user space controlled USB device with an URB pending in user space could crash the kernel. This can be easily triggered by local attacker.
  • CVE-2005-3180: Fixed incorrect padding in Orinoco wireless driver, which could expose kernel data to the air.
  • CVE-2005-3044: Missing sockfd_put() calls in routing_ioctl() leaked file handles which in turn could exhaust system memory.
  • CVE-2005-3527: A race condition in do_coredump in signal.c allows local users to cause a denial of service (machine hang) by triggering a core dump in one thread while another thread has a pending SIGSTOP.

Additionally the following non security bugs were fixed:

  • Fix NFS cache consistency races which could lead to data corruption and crashes.
  • A kernel panic when loading the r8169 module without powermanagment was fixed.
  • i386: A race condition in the power management module powernow-k8 was fixed.
  • Special ELF binaries without DATA and BSS segments could not be loaded due to too strict kernel checks.
  • Various bugs in the ALSA sound system were fixed.
  • A problem in IPv6 initialization with IPv6 disabled by policy that could leave dangling kernel pointers around was fixed.
  • Added sis 965l support to the sis5513 ide driver.
  • Disabled C2/C3 power management states on all IBM R40e BIOSes.
  • Fixed machine crash when switching the io-scheduler away from CFQ.
  • Call reboot notifiers of power off to switch off certain machines.
  • AMD64: Don't use TSC for time keeping on AMD single socket dual core systems.
  • Fixed the "treason uncloaked" kernel messages that were caused by a stale pred_flags variable when the TCP snd_wnd changes.
  • USB floppy drive SAMSUNG SFD-321U/EP was detected 8 times.
  • CONFIG_ACPI_HOTKEY is not supportable yet according to Intel, so we disabled it.
  • Disable ACPI on machines from before 2001 on all kernels again.
  • USB: always export interface information for modalias.
  • Various iSCSI fixes.
  • Avoid a potential fs corruption on SMP systems.
  • i386: Increased number of CONFIG_SERIAL8250NR_UARTS to 8.
  • Fixed a data corruption in the MD device driver when the delayed recovery is interrupted.
  • ahci: Don't set SActive for non-NCQ commands. This could have left the LED burning even for inactivity.
  • ppc: Handle GCC 4 generated relocations for 32bit memory access in the module loader.
  • ppc: Removed a special case for ppc to use MAC from prom if CSR is corrupt
  • CIFS: Made cifsd (kernel daemon for the CIFS filesystem) suspend aware.
  • Fixed ACPI issues on an ASUS L5D.
  • IDE: Worked around power management problems.
  • Disable AMD TLB flush filter on i386/x86-64 (might help 3d drivers)
  • Quiet down capacity reading from IDE CD when no media inserted.
  • ACPI: Worked around undefined ZOO* objects on certain Acer Aspire notebooks.
  • ACPI: Fixed Oops on pcc_acpi unloading.
  • ACPI: Fix hang in ACPI device scan on certain HP nx Laptops.
  • Fixed a bug in ACL handling of tmpfs.
  • Fix time going twice as fast problem on ATI Xpress chip sets.

2) Solution or Work-Around

None, please install the fixed packages.

3) Special Instructions and Notes

SPECIAL INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

The following paragraphs guide you through the installation process in a step-by-step fashion. The character sequence "****" marks the beginning of a new paragraph. In some cases, the steps outlined in a particular paragraph may or may not be applicable to your situation. Therefore, make sure that you read through all of the steps below before attempting any of these procedures. All of the commands that need to be executed must be run as the superuser 'root'. Each step relies on the steps before it to complete successfully.

  • Step 1: Determine the needed kernel type.

    Use the following command to determine which kind of kernel is installed on your system:

    rpm -qf --qf '%{name} ' /boot/vmlinuz

  • Step 2: Download the packages for your system.

    Download the kernel RPM package for your distribution with the name indicated by Step 1. Starting from SUSE LINUX 9.2, kernel modules that are not free were moved to a separate package with the suffix '-nongpl' in its name. Download that package as well if you rely on hardware that requires non-free drivers, such as some ISDN adapters. The list of all kernel RPM packages is appended below.

    The kernel-source package does not contain a binary kernel in bootable form. Instead, it contains the sources that correspond with the binary kernel RPM packages. This package is required to build third party add-on modules.

  • Step 3: Verify authenticity of the packages.

    Verify the authenticity of the kernel RPM package using the methods as listed in Section 6 of this SUSE Security Announcement.

  • Step 4: Installing your kernel rpm package.

    Install the rpm package that you have downloaded in Step 2 with the command

    rpm -Uhv <FILE> replacing <FILE> with the filename of the RPM package downloaded.

    Warning: After performing this step, your system may not boot unless the following steps have been followed completely.

  • Step 5: Configuring and creating the initrd.

    The initrd is a RAM disk that is loaded into the memory of your system together with the kernel boot image by the boot loader. The kernel uses the content of this RAM disk to execute commands that must be run before the kernel can mount its root file system. The initrd is typically used to load hard disk controller drivers and file system modules. The variable INITRD_MODULES in /etc/sysconfig/kernel determines which kernel modules are loaded in the initrd.

    After a new kernel rpm has been installed, the initrd must be recreated to include the updated kernel modules. Usually this happens automatically when installing the kernel rpm. If creating the initrd fails for some reason, manually run the command

    /sbin/mkinitrd

  • Step 6: Update the boot loader, if necessary.

    Depending on your software configuration, you either have the LILO or GRUB boot loader installed and initialized on your system. Use the command

    grep LOADER_TYPE /etc/sysconfig/bootloader

    to find out which boot loader is configured.

    The GRUB boot loader does not require any further action after a new kernel has been installed. You may proceed to the next step if you are using GRUB.

    If you use the LILO boot loader, lilo must be run to reinitialize the boot sector of the hard disk. Usually this happens automatically when installing the kernel RPM. In case this step fails, run the command

    /sbin/lilo

    Warning: An improperly installed boot loader will render your system unbootable.

  • Step 7: Reboot.

    If all of the steps above have been successfully completed on your system, the new kernel including the kernel modules and the initrd are ready to boot. The system needs to be rebooted for the changes to be active. Make sure that all steps have been completed then reboot using the command

    /sbin/shutdown -r now

    Your system will now shut down and restart with the new kernel.

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.

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 <security@suse.de>"

    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
  • 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 build@suse.de 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.

  • 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 security@suse.de), 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.
