Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Multiple vulnerabilities were found in the image decoders of ImageMagick. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a malicious DCM, DIB, XBM, XCF, or XWD image, a remote attacker could execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
 
Ubuntu: OpenSSL vulnerabilities  28 September 2007

Ubuntu: libmodplug vulnerability  27 September 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Luigi Auriemma discovered that libmodplug did not properly sanitize its input. A specially crafted AMF file could be used to exploit this situation to cause buffer overflows and possibly execute arbitrary code as the user.
 
Ubuntu: fetchmail vulnerabilities  25 September 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Gaetan Leurent discovered a vulnerability in the APOP protocol based on MD5 collisions. As fetchmail supports the APOP protocol, this vulnerability can be used by attackers to discover a portion of the APOP user's authentication credentials.
 
Ubuntu: elinks vulnerability  25 September 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Kalle Olavi Niemitalo discovered that if elinks makes a POST request to an HTTPS URL through a proxy, information may be sent in clear-text between elinks and the proxy. Attackers with access to the network could steal sensitive information (such as passwords).
