Ubuntu: KDE library vulnerability  06 February 2007

Ubuntu: Bind vulnerabilities  05 February 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas

Ubuntu: PostgreSQL vulnerabilities  05 February 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Jeff Trout discovered that the PostgreSQL server did not sufficiently check data types of SQL function arguments in some cases. An authenticated attacker could exploit this to crash the database server or read out arbitrary locations in the server's memory, which could allow retrieving database content the attacker should not be able to see. (CVE-2007-0555)
Ubuntu: GTK vulnerability  01 February 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
A flaw was discovered in the error handling of GTK's image loading library. Applications opening certain corrupted images could be made to crash, causing a denial of service.
Ubuntu: Firefox regression  26 January 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
USN-398-2 fixed vulnerabilities in Firefox 1.5. However, when auto-filling saved-password login forms without a username field, Firefox would crash. This update fixes the problem. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Ubuntu: teTeX vulnerability  25 January 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
USN-410-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the poppler PDF loader library. This update provides the corresponding updates for a copy of this code in tetex-bin in Ubuntu 5.10. Versions of tetex-bin after Ubuntu 5.10 use poppler directly and do not need a separate update.
