Foresight: file  24 May 2007 
Previous versions of the file package are vulnerable to two attacks in which a maliciously crafted file can cause the file command, and any other application using libmagic, to use excessive CPU resources (Denial of Service), crash, or execute arbitrary, attacker-provided code.
Foresight: madwifi  24 May 2007 
Previous versions of the madwifi kernel module were vulnerable to three issues whereby malicious remote users can cause a crash via specially formed packets sent to the vulnerable system.
Foresight: python  21 May 2007 
Previous versions of the python package have a weakness that can expose memory contents, leading to potential information exposure.
Foresight: freetype  21 May 2007 
Previous versions of the freetype package were vulnerable to an issue whereby a specially crafted ttf file could execute arbitrary code at the permission level of the use running freetype.
Foresight: libpng  17 May 2007 
Previous versions of the libpng package can cause applications to crash when loading malformed PNG files. It is not currently known whether this vulnerability can be exploited to execute malicious code.
Foresight: samba  15 May 2007 
Previous versions of the samba package are vulnerable to multiple attacks in which remote attackers may be able to run arbitrary code as the root user on samba servers. The default install of Foresight is not vulnerable - one must manually configure samba for these vulnerabilities to be exposed.
Foresight: kernel  08 May 2007 
Previous versions of the Linux kernel are vulnerable to a local user Denial of Service attack in which local users can trigger a kernel stack overflow using the netlink layer, and to one remote Denial of Service attack in which if IPv6 routing has been configured, a remote user can cause the system to use all available network bandwidth by sending a specially-crafted IPv6 packet.
