Mandrake: fetchmail buffer overflow vulnerabilities  02 October 2002 
Several buffer overflows and a boundary check error were discovered in all fetchmail versions prior to 6.1.0 by e-matters GmbH. These problems are vulnerable to crashes and/or arbitrary code execution by remote attackers if fetchmail is running in multidrop mode. The code execution would be done with the same privilege as the user running fetchmail.
 
Mandrake: PostgreSQL multipule buffer overflow vulnerabilities  02 October 2002 
PostgreSQL has vulnerabilities that are buffer overflows in the rpad(), lpad(), repeat(), and cash_words() functions. The Postgresql developers also fixed a buffer overflow in functions that deal with time/date and timezone. More buffer overflows also exist in the circle_poly(), path_encode(), and path_addr() functions.
 
Mandrake: glibc buffer overflow  24 September 2002 
A heap buffer overflow exists in the XDR decoder in glibc version 2.2.5 and earlier. XDR is a mechanism for encoding data structures for use with RPC, which is derived from Sun's RPC implementation which is likewise vulnerable to a heap overflow. Depending on the application, this vulnerability may be exploitable and could lead to arbitrary code execution.
 
Mandrake: tcl/tk vulnerability  24 September 2002 
Some problems were discovered with the Tcl/Tk development environment. The expect application would search for its libraries in /var/tmp prior to searching in other directories, which could allow a local user to gain root privilege by writing a trojan library and waiting for the root user to run the mkpasswd utility.
 
Mandrake: 'php' Arbitrary command execution vulnerability  11 September 2002 
This vulnerability would allow local users and, possibly, remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands using shell metacharacters.
 
Mandrake: krb5 heap overflow  10 September 2002 
The implemenation of Kerberos 5 contains an RPC library which is vulnerable to a heap overflow. With Kerberos, it is believed that an attacker would need to be able to successfully authenticate to kadmin to be able to exploit this vulnerability.
 
Mandrake: 'kdelibs' Privacy escalation vulnerability  10 September 2002 
Due to a security engineering oversight, the SSL library from KDE, which Konqueror uses, doesn't check whether an intermediate certificate for a connection is signed by the certificate authority as safe for the purpose, but accepts it when it is signed.
