Deb: Buffer overflow in some ftp servers  12 January 2000 
Posted by Team   
The wu-ftpd-academ and proftpd packages distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.0 (hamm) are vulnerable to a buffer overflow. It is possible to gain shell access to the machine, and we recommend upgrading these packages immediately.

New version of samba released  13 December 1999 
Posted by Team   
The version of samba as distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 has a couple ofsecurity problems:* a Denial-of-Service attack against nmbd was possible* it was possible to exploit smbd if you had a message command defined which used the %f or %M formatter.* smbmnt's check to see if a user is allowed to create a mount was flawed which allowed users to mount at arbitraty mountpoints in the filesystem
New version of htdig released  13 December 1999 
Posted by Team   
The version of htdig that was shipped in Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 has a problem with calling external programs to handle non-HTML documents: it calls the external program with the document as a parameter, but does not check for shell escapes. This can be exploited by creating files with filenames that include shell escapes to run arbitraty commands on the machine that runs htdig.
New version of sendmail-wide released  13 December 1999 
Posted by Team   
The version of sendmail-wide that was distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 has a slight problem in the code to regenerate the aliases database. Sendmail allowed any user to run sendmail with the -bi option to (re)initialize the aliases database. The user could then interrupt sendmail and leave the system with a broken aliases database.
Updated i386 package for sendmail  13 December 1999 
Posted by Team   
The version of sendmail that was listed in the earlier advisory today was compiled with the wrong version of libc. This has been corrected in version 8.9.3-3slink1.0.1 .
