Ubuntu: JasPer vulnerabilities  19 March 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that JasPer did not correctly handle memory allocation when parsing certain malformed JPEG2000 images. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted image with an application that uses libjasper, an attacker could cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2008-3520) It was discovered that JasPer created temporary files in an insecure way. Local users could exploit a race condition and cause a denial of service in libjasper applications. (CVE-2008-3521) It was discovered that JasPer did not correctly handle certain formatting operations. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted image with an application that uses libjasper, an attacker could cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2008-3522)
 
Ubuntu: Amarok vulnerabilities  17 March 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that Amarok did not correctly handle certain malformed tags in Audible Audio (.aa) files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted Audible Audio file, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program.
 
Ubuntu: FFmpeg vulnerabilities  16 March 2009 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that FFmpeg did not correctly handle certain malformed Ogg Media (OGM) files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted Ogg Media file, an attacker could cause the application using FFmpeg to crash, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2008-4610) It was discovered that FFmpeg did not correctly handle certain parameters when creating DTS streams. If a user were tricked into processing certain commands, 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. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.10. (CVE-2008-4866) It was discovered that FFmpeg did not correctly handle certain malformed DTS Coherent Acoustics (DCA) files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted DCA 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-2008-4867) It was discovered that FFmpeg did not correctly handle certain malformed 4X movie (4xm) files. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted 4xm file, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2009-0385)
 
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.
