Ubuntu: OpenOffice.org Internationalization update  23 December 2008 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
USN-677-1 fixed vulnerabilities in OpenOffice.org. The changes required that openoffice.org-l10n also be updated for the new version in Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. Original advisory details: Multiple memory overflow flaws were discovered in OpenOffice.org's handling of WMF and EMF files. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted document, a remote attacker might be able to execute arbitrary code with user privileges. (CVE-2008-2237, CVE-2008-2238)
 
Ubuntu: Nagios vulnerabilities  23 December 2008 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that Nagios was vulnerable to a Cross-site request forgery (CSRF) vulnerability. If an authenticated nagios user were tricked into clicking a link on a specially crafted web page, an attacker could trigger commands to be processed by Nagios and execute arbitrary programs. This update alters Nagios behaviour by disabling submission of CMD_CHANGE commands. (CVE-2008-5028)
 
Ubuntu: Blender vulnerabilities  22 December 2008 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that Blender did not correctly handle certain malformed Radiance RGBE images. If a user were tricked into opening a .blend file containing a specially crafted Radiance RGBE image, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2008-1102)

Ubuntu: Imlib2 vulnerability  22 December 2008 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas

Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas
