Ubuntu: GStreamer Base Plugins vulnerability  16 March 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that the Base64 decoding functions in GStreamer Base Plugins did not properly handle large images in Vorbis file tags. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted Vorbis file, an attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
 
Ubuntu: libsoup vulnerability  16 March 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that the Base64 encoding functions in libsoup did not properly handle large strings. If a user were tricked into connecting to a malicious server, an attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
 
Ubuntu: GStreamer Good Plugins vulnerabilities  16 March 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that GStreamer Good Plugins did not correctly handle malformed Composition Time To Sample (ctts) atom data in Quicktime (mov) movie files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted mov file, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0386) It was discovered that GStreamer Good Plugins did not correctly handle malformed Sync Sample (aka stss) atom data in Quicktime (mov) movie files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted mov file, an attacker could cause a denial of service via application crash, or possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0387) It was discovered that GStreamer Good Plugins did not correctly handle malformed Time-to-sample (aka stts) atom data in Quicktime (mov) movie files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted mov file, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0397)
 
Ubuntu: evolution-data-server vulnerability  16 March 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that the Base64 encoding functions in evolution-data-server did not properly handle large strings. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted image file, or tricked into connecting to a malicious server, an attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
 
Ubuntu: dash vulnerability  11 March 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Wolfgang M. Reimer discovered that dash, when invoked as a login shell, would source .profile files from the current directory. Local users may be able to bypass security restrictions and gain root privileges by placing specially crafted .profile files where they might get sourced by other dash users.
 
Ubuntu: Apache vulnerabilities  11 March 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that Apache did not sanitize the method specifier header from an HTTP request when it is returned in an error message, which could result in browsers becoming vulnerable to cross-site scripting attacks when processing the output. With cross-site scripting vulnerabilities, if a user were tricked into viewing server output during a crafted server request, a remote attacker could exploit this to modify the contents, or steal confidential data (such as passwords), within the same domain. This issue only affected Ubuntu 6.06 LTS and 7.10. (CVE-2007-6203)
 
Ubuntu: curl regression  05 March 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
USN-726-1 fixed a vulnerability in curl. Due to an incomplete fix, a regression was introduced in Ubuntu 8.10 that caused certain types of URLs to fail. This update fixes the problem. We apologize for the inconvenience.
