A vulnerability was discovered by Solar Designer in xinetd.
 
Mandrake: sharutils uudecode vulnerability  15 August 2002 
The uudecode utility creates output files without checking to see if it is about to write to a symlink or pipe. This could be exploited by a local attacker to overwrite files or lead to privilege escalation if users decode data into share directories.
 
Mandrake: xchat dns query handling  15 August 2002 
xchat does not filter the response from an IRC server when a /dns query is executed, so an IRC server may return a malicious response formatted so that arbitrary commands are executed with the privilege of the user running xchat.
 
Mandrake: bind denial of service  15 August 2002 
An error condition will trigger the shutdown of the bind server when the rdataset parameter in message.c is not NULL as expected. This can only be used to create a Denial of Service on the server; the error condition is correctly detected, so it will not allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the server.
 
Mandrake: libpng buffer overflow  14 August 2002
