Ubuntu: rsync vulnerability  11 April 2008 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Sebastian Krahmer discovered that rsync could overflow when handling ACLs. An attacker could construct a malicious set of files that when processed by rsync could lead to arbitrary code execution or a crash.
Ubuntu: Ghostscript vulnerability  09 April 2008 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Chris Evans discovered that Ghostscript contained a buffer overflow in its color space handling code. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a crafted Postscript file, an attacker could cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code with privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2008-0411)
Ubuntu: CUPS vulnerabilities  02 April 2008 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that the CUPS administration interface contained a heap- based overflow flaw. A local attacker, and a remote attacker if printer sharing is enabled, could send a malicious request and possibly execute arbitrary code as the non-root user in Ubuntu 6.06 LTS, 6.10, and 7.04. In Ubuntu 7.10, attackers would be isolated by the AppArmor CUPS profile. (CVE-2008-0047)
Ubuntu: MySQL regression  02 April 2008 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
USN-588-1 fixed vulnerabilities in MySQL. In fixing CVE-2007-2692 for Ubuntu 6.06, additional improvements were made to make privilege checks more restictive. As a result, an upstream bug was exposed which could cause operations on tables or views in a different database to fail. This update fixes the problem.
Ubuntu: OpenSSH vulnerability  02 April 2008 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Timo Juhani Lindfors discovered that the OpenSSH client, when port forwarding was requested, would listen on any available address family. A local attacker could exploit this flaw on systems with IPv6 enabled to hijack connections, including X11 forwards.
Ubuntu: Ruby vulnerabilities  26 March 2008 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Chris Clark discovered that Ruby's HTTPS module did not check for commonName mismatches early enough during SSL negotiation. If a remote attacker were able to perform man-in-the-middle attacks, this flaw could be exploited to view sensitive information in HTTPS requests coming from Ruby applications. (CVE-2007-5162)
Ubuntu: Dovecot vulnerabilities  26 March 2008 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that the default configuration of dovecot could allow access to any email files with group "mail" without verifying that a user had valid rights. An attacker able to create symlinks in their mail directory could exploit this to read or delete another user's email. (CVE-2008-1199)
