Pardus Linux Security Advisory 2010-109 
      Date: 2010-08-11
  Severity: 3
      Type: Local

Multiple vulnerabilities have been fixed in cabextract.


The MS-ZIP decompressor in cabextract before 1.3 allows remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (infinite  loop)  via  a  malformed  MSZIP
archive in a .cab file during a (1) test or (2) extract action, related
to the libmspack library.


Integer signedness error in  the  Quantum  decompressor  in  cabextract
before 1.3, when archive test mode is used, allows user-assisted remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or  possibly
execute arbitrary code via a crafted Quantum archive in  a  .cab  file,
related to the libmspack library.

Affected packages:

  Pardus 2009:
    cabextract, all before 1.3-4-3

There are update(s) for cabextract. You can  update  them  via  Package
Manager or with a single command from console:
