Mandrake: Updated ethereal packages  24 January 2005 
A number of vulnerabilities were found in Ethereal, all of which are fixed in version 0.10.9: The COPS dissector could go into an infinite loop (CAN-2005-0006); the DLSw dissector could cause an assertion, making Ethereal exit prematurely (CAN-2005-0007); the DNP dissector could cause memory corruption (CAN-2005-0008); the Gnutella dissector could cause an assertion, making Ethereal exit prematurely (CAN-2005-0009); the MMSE dissector could free static memory (CAN-2005-0010); and the X11 protocol dissector is vulnerable to a string buffer overflow (CAN-2005-0084).
Mandrake: Updated zhcon packages fix  24 January 2005 
Erik Sjolund discovered that zhcon accesses a user-controlled configuration file with elevated privileges which could make it possible to read arbitrary files.
Mandrake: Updated xine packages fix  19 January 2005 
iDefense discovered that the PNA_TAG handling code in pnm_get_chunk() does not check if the input size is larger than the buffer size (CAN-2004-1187). As well, they discovered that in this same function, a negative value could be given to an unsigned variable that specifies the read length of input data (CAN-2004-1188). Ariel Berkman discovered that xine-lib reads specific input data into an array without checking the input size making it vulnerable to a buffer overflow problem (CAN-2004-1300).
Mandrake: Updated playmidi packages  19 January 2005 
Erik Sjolund discovered a buffer overflow in playmidi that could be exploited by a local attacker if installed setuid root. Note that by default Mandrakelinux does not ship playmidi installed setuid root.
Mandrake: Updated mpg123 packages fix  19 January 2005 
A vulnerability in mpg123's ability to parse frame headers in input streams could allow a malicious file to exploit a buffer overflow and execute arbitray code with the permissions of the user running mpg123.
Mandrake: CUPS multiple vulnerabilities fix  17 January 2005 
A buffer overflow was discovered in the ParseCommand function in the hpgltops utility. An attacker with the ability to send malicious HPGL files to a printer could possibly execute arbitrary code as the "lp" user (CAN-2004-1267).
Mandrake: hylafax vulnerability fix  12 January 2005 
Patrice Fournier discovered a vulnerability in the authorization sub-system of hylafax. A local or remote user guessing the contents of the hosts.hfaxd database could gain unauthorized access to the fax system.
