Ubuntu: Quagga vulnerability  17 May 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
It was discovered that Quagga did not correctly verify length information sent from configured peers. Remote malicious peers could send a specially crafted UPDATE message which would cause bgpd to abort, leading to a denial of service.
Ubuntu: Samba vulnerabilities  15 May 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Paul Griffith and Andrew Hogue discovered that Samba did not fully drop root privileges while translating SIDs. A remote authenticated user could issue SMB operations during a small window of opportunity and gain root privileges.
Ubuntu: pptpd vulnerability  14 May 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
A flaw was discovered in the PPTP tunnel server. Remote attackers could send a specially crafted packet and disrupt established PPTP tunnels, leading to a denial of service.
Ubuntu: MoinMoin vulnerabilities  08 May 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
A flaw was discovered in MoinMoin's error reporting when using the AttachFile action. By tricking a user into viewing a crafted MoinMoin URL, an attacker could execute arbitrary JavaScript as the current MoinMoin user, possibly exposing the user's authentication information for the domain where MoinMoin was hosted.
Ubuntu: elinks vulnerability  07 May 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Arnaud Giersch discovered that elinks incorrectly attempted to load gettext catalogs from a relative path. If a user were tricked into running elinks from a specific directory, a local attacker could execute code with user privileges.
Ubuntu: net-snmp vulnerability  02 May 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
The SNMP service did not correctly handle TCP disconnects. Remote subagents could cause a denial of service if they dropped a connection at a specific time.
Ubuntu: PostgreSQL vulnerability  27 April 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
PostgreSQL did not handle the "search_path" configuration option in a secure way for functions declared as "SECURITY DEFINER". Previously, an attacker could override functions and operators used by the security definer function to execute arbitrary SQL commands with the privileges of the user who created the security definer function.
