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.
Ubuntu: PHP vulnerabilities  27 April 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Stefan Esser discovered multiple vulnerabilities in the "Month of PHP bugs". The substr_compare() function did not sufficiently verify its length argument. This might be exploited to read otherwise unaccessible memory, which might lead to information disclosure. (CVE-2007-1375) The shared memory (shmop) functions did not verify resource types, thus they could be called with a wrong resource type that might contain user supplied data. This could be exploited to read and write arbitrary memory addresses of the PHP interpreter. This issue does not affect Ubuntu 7.04. (CVE-2007-1376)
Ubuntu: rdesktop regression  26 April 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
USN-453-1 provided an updated libx11 package to fix a security vulnerability. This triggered an error in rdesktop so that it crashed on startup. This update fixes the problem.
Ubuntu: vulnerability  18 April 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Multiple integer overflows were found in the XGetPixel function of libx11. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted XWD image, remote attackers could execute arbitrary code with user privileges.
Ubuntu: KDE library vulnerability  11 April 2007 
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
The Qt library did not correctly handle truncated UTF8 strings, which could cause some applications to incorrectly filter malicious strings. If a Konqueror user were tricked into visiting a web site containing specially crafted strings, normal XSS prevention could be bypassed allowing a remote attacker to steal confidential data.
