Ubuntu: libwpd vulnerability  19 March 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Sean Larsson of iDefense Labs discovered that libwpd was vulnerable to integer overflows. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted WordPerfect document with an application that used libwpd, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
 
Ubuntu: GnuPG2, GPGME vulnerability  13 March 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
USN-432-1 fixed a vulnerability in GnuPG. This update provides the corresponding updates for GnuPG2 and the GPGME library. Original advisory details: Gerardo Richarte from Core Security Technologies discovered that when gnupg is used without --status-fd, there is no way to distinguish initial unsigned messages from a following signed message. An attacker could inject an unsigned message, which could fool the user into thinking the message was entirely signed by the original sender.
 
Ubuntu: KTorrent vulnerabilities  12 March 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Bryan Burns of Juniper Networks discovered that KTorrent did not correctly validate the destination file paths nor the HAVE statements sent by torrent peers. A malicious remote peer could send specially crafted messages to overwrite files or execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
 
Ubuntu: Xine vulnerability  12 March 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Moritz Jodeit discovered that the DirectShow loader of Xine did not correctly validate the size of an allocated buffer. By tricking a user into opening a specially crafted media file, an attacker could execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.
 
Ubuntu: Ekiga vulnerability  08 March 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that Ekiga had format string vulnerabilities beyond those fixed in USN-426-1. If a user was running Ekiga and listening for incoming calls, a remote attacker could send a crafted call request, and execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.
