Ubuntu: XML-RPC for C and C++ vulnerabilities  18 February 2010 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
USN-890-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Expat. This update provides the corresponding updates for XML-RPC for C and C++. Original advisory details: Jukka Taimisto, Tero Rontti and Rauli Kaksonen discovered that Expat did not properly process malformed XML. If a user or application linked against Expat were tricked into opening a crafted XML file, an attacker could cause a denial of service via application crash. (CVE-2009-2625, CVE-2009-3720) It was discovered that Expat did not properly process malformed UTF-8 sequences. If a user or application linked against Expat were tricked into opening a crafted XML file, an attacker could cause a denial of service via application crash. (CVE-2009-3560)
 
Ubuntu: Firefox 3.5 and Xulrunner 1.9.1 vulnerabilities  17 February 2010 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Several flaws were discovered in the browser engine of Firefox. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2010-0159) Orlando Barrera II discovered a flaw in the Web Workers implementation of Firefox. If a user were tricked into posting to a malicious website, an attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2010-0160) Alin Rad Pop discovered that Firefox's HTML parser would incorrectly free memory under certain circumstances. If the browser could be made to access these freed memory objects, an attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-1571) Hidetake Jo discovered that the showModalDialog in Firefox did not always honor the same-origin policy. An attacker could exploit this to run untrusted JavaScript from other domains. (CVE-2009-3988) Georgi Guninski discovered that the same-origin check in Firefox could be bypassed by utilizing a crafted SVG image. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website, an attacker could exploit this to read data from other domains. (CVE-2010-0162)

Ubuntu: Squid vulnerabilities  16 February 2010 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that Squid incorrectly handled certain auth headers. A remote attacker could exploit this with a specially-crafted auth header and cause Squid to go into an infinite loop, resulting in a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.10, 9.04 and 9.10. (CVE-2009-2855) It was discovered that Squid incorrectly handled certain DNS packets. A remote attacker could exploit this with a specially-crafted DNS packet and cause Squid to crash, resulting in a denial of service. (CVE-2010-0308)
 
Ubuntu: Ruby vulnerabilities  16 February 2010 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Emmanouel Kellinis discovered that Ruby did not properly handle certain string operations. An attacker could exploit this issue and possibly execute arbitrary code with application privileges. (CVE-2009-4124) Giovanni Pellerano, Alessandro Tanasi, and Francesco Ongaro discovered that Ruby did not properly sanitize data written to log files. An attacker could insert specially-crafted data into log files which could affect certain terminal emulators and cause arbitrary files to be overwritten, or even possibly execute arbitrary commands. (CVE-2009-4492) It was discovered that Ruby did not properly handle string arguments that represent large numbers. An attacker could exploit this and cause a denial of service. This issue only affected Ubuntu 9.10. (CVE-2009-1904)
 
Ubuntu: Tomcat vulnerabilities  11 February 2010 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas
