Severity: Normal
Title: Zebedee: Denial of Service vulnerability
Date: September 20, 2005
Bugs: #105115
ID: 200509-14


Synopsis

A bug in Zebedee allows a remote attacker to perform a Denial of
Service attack.

Background

Zebedee is an application that establishes an encrypted,
compressed tunnel for TCP/IP or UDP data transfer between two
systems.

Affected packages


     Package           /  Vulnerable  /                     Unaffected


1 net-misc/zebedee < 2.5.3 *>= 2.4.1-r1 >= 2.5.3

Description

“Shiraishi.M” reported that Zebedee crashes when “0” is received
as the port number in the protocol option header.

Impact

By performing malformed requests a remote attacker could cause
Zebedee to crash.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Zebedee users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose net-misc/zebedee

Gentoo Linux Security Advisory GLSA 200509-15


http://security.gentoo.org/


Severity: High
Title: util-linux: umount command validation error
Date: September 20, 2005
Bugs: #105805
ID: 200509-15


Synopsis

A command validation error in umount can lead to an escalation
of privileges.

Background

util-linux is a suite of useful Linux programs including umount,
a program used to unmount filesystems.

Affected packages


     Package              /  Vulnerable  /                  Unaffected

  1  sys-apps/util-linux     < 2.12q-r3                    >= 2.12q-r3

Description

When a regular user mounts a filesystem, they are subject to
restrictions in the /etc/fstab configuration file. David Watson
discovered that when unmounting a filesystem with the ‘-r’ option,
the read-only bit is set, while other bits, such as nosuid or
nodev, are not set, even if they were previously.

Impact

An unprivileged user facing nosuid or nodev restrictions can
umount -r a filesystem clearing those bits, allowing applications
to be executed suid, or have device nodes interpreted. In the case
where the user can freely modify the contents of the filesystem,
privilege escalation may occur as a custom program may execute with
suid permissions.

Workaround

Two workarounds exist, first, the suid bit can be removed from
the umount utility, or users can be restricted from mounting and
unmounting filesystems in /etc/fstab.

Resolution

All util-linux users should upgrade to the latest version:

    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-apps/util-linux-2.12q-r3"

Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory


Package name: cups
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:165
Date: September 15th, 2005
Affected versions: 10.0, Corporate 3.0, Corporate Server 2.1


Problem Description:

A vulnerability in CUPS would treat a Location directive in
cupsd.conf as case-sensitive, allowing attackers to bypass intended
ACLs via a printer name containing uppercase or lowecase letters
that are different from that which was specified in the Location
directive. This issue only affects versions of CUPS prior to
1.1.21rc1.

The updated packages have been patched to correct this
problem.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-185-1 September 20, 2005
cupsys vulnerability
CAN-2004-2154


A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)

The following packages are affected:

cupsys

The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package
to version 1.1.20final+cvs20040330-4ubuntu16.5. In general, a
standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the necessary
changes.

Details follow:

A flaw was detected in the printer access control list checking
in the CUPS server. Printer names were compared in a case sensitive
manner; by modifying the capitalization of printer names, a remote
attacker could circumvent ACLs and print to printers he should not
have access to.

The Ubuntu 5.04 version of cupsys is not vulnerable against
this.
