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.
 
Ubuntu: curl vulnerability  03 March 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that curl did not enforce any restrictions when following URL redirects. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a URL to an untrusted server, an attacker could use redirects to gain access to abitrary files. This update changes curl behavior to prevent following "file" URLs after a redirect.
 
Ubuntu: NetworkManager vulnerability  03 March 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
USN-727-1 fixed vulnerabilities in network-manager-applet. This advisory provides the corresponding updates for NetworkManager. It was discovered that NetworkManager did not properly enforce permissions when responding to dbus requests. A local user could perform dbus queries to view system and user network connection passwords and pre-shared keys.

Ubuntu: Git vulnerabilities  18 February 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that Git did not properly handle long file paths. If a user were tricked into performing commands on a specially crafted Git repository, an attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2008-3546) It was discovered that the Git web interface (gitweb) did not correctly handle shell metacharacters when processing certain commands. A remote attacker could send specially crafted commands to the Git server and execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the Git web server. This issue only applied to Ubuntu 7.10 and 8.04 LTS. (CVE-2008-5516, CVE-2008-5517) It was discovered that the Git web interface (gitweb) did not properly restrict the diff.external configuration parameter. A local attacker could exploit this issue and execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the Git web server. This issue only applied to Ubuntu 8.04 LTS and 8.10. (CVE-2008-5916)
 
Ubuntu: PHP vulnerabilities  12 February 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that PHP did not properly enforce php_admin_value and php_admin_flag restrictions in the Apache configuration file. A local attacker could create a specially crafted PHP script that would bypass intended security restrictions. This issue only applied to Ubuntu 6.06 LTS, 7.10, and 8.04 LTS. (CVE-2007-5900)
