-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 ______________________________________________________________________________ SUSE Security Summary Report Announcement ID: SUSE-SR:2006:019 Date: Wed, 09 Aug 2006 15:00:00 +0000 Cross-References: CVE-2006-1695, CVE-2006-3119, CVE-2006-3376 CVE-2006-3404, CVE-2006-3458, CVE-2006-3548 CVE-2006-3549 Content of this advisory: 1) Solved Security Vulnerabilities: - fbi unsafe postscript display - gimp XCF loader problem - libwmf overflow - server PCF problems - zope information disclosure - horde various problems 2) Pending Vulnerabilities, Solutions, and Work-Arounds: - Kernel Update - Mozilla Firefox / Thunderbird / Suite Security Updates - php4 / php5 security updates in preparation - ethereal security update 3) Authenticity Verification and Additional Information ______________________________________________________________________________ 1) Solved Security Vulnerabilities To avoid flooding mailing lists with SUSE Security Announcements for minor issues, SUSE Security releases weekly summary reports for the low profile vulnerability fixes. The SUSE Security Summary Reports do not list md5 sums or download URLs like the SUSE Security Announcements that are released for more severe vulnerabilities. Fixed packages for the following incidents are already available on our FTP server and via the YaST Online Update. - fbi unsafe postscript display The fbgs program did not activate security options in the postscript interpreter due to a typo (CVE-2006-3119). fbgs also used a temporary directory with a predictable name (CVE-2006-1695). Updates have been released for all SUSE Linux products. - gimp XCF loader problem A buffer overflow was fixed in the xcf loader in GIMP that allows user-complicit attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly to execute arbitrary code via an XCF file with a large num_axes value in the VECTORS property. (CVE-2006-3404) Fixed gimp and gimp-unstable packages have been released for all SUSE Linux based products. - libwmf overflow A heap overflow could be triggered by specially crafted WMF (Windows Meta Files) in the libwmf library. This problem could be exploited to execute code, by a remote attacker providing a file with embedded WMF data to an application understanding this (like OpenOffice_org, abiword, gimp). This issue is tracked by the Mitre CVE ID CVE-2006-3376 and affects all SUSE Linux based products. - server PCF problems The PCF handling in the X.Org and XFree86 servers suffered from similar problems than freetype2. This security update fixes crashes in the PCF handling, which might be used to crash the Xserver using applications or even to execute code in it. All SUSE Linux based products were affected by this problem. - zope information disclosure The content management system Zope had a bug in the way the docutils module parses and renders "restructured text" could lead to information disclosure. This issue is tracked by the Mitre CVE ID CVE-2006-3458 and affects all SUSE Linux products. - horde various problems The following two security issues were fixed in the Horde Application Framework: - CVE-2006-3548: Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a (1) javascript URI or an external (2) http, (3) https, or (4) ftp URI in the url parameter in services/go.php (aka the dereferrer), (5) a javascript URI in the module parameter in services/help (aka the help viewer), and (6) the name parameter in services/problem.php (aka the problem reporting screen). - CVE-2006-3549: services/go.php does not properly restrict its image proxy capability, which allows remote attackers to perform "Web tunneling" attacks and use the server as a proxy via (1) http, (2) https, and (3) ftp URL in the url parameter, which is requested from the server. ______________________________________________________________________________ 2) Pending Vulnerabilities, Solutions, and Work-Arounds - Kernel Update for Enterprise Distributions The update kernels for the last 2 local root privilege escalations are still not released due to trouble with (mandatory) partner re-certification testing. We hope to be able to release them this week. - Mozilla Firefox / Thunderbird / Suite Security Updates We will be updating Mozilla in the next days. - Mozilla Firefox: All Mozilla Firefox on released distributions will be upgraded to version This update affects: Novell Linux Desktop 9, SUSE Linux Enterprise 10, SUSE Linux 9.2 - 10.1 The update might break manually installed Firefox Extensions. - Mozilla Thunderbird Mozilla Thunderbird updates have been released, the version was bumped to (The patch summary lists it incorrectly at, but it is - Mozilla Suite discontinuation / replacement by Seamonkey. Since the Mozilla Suite is no longer maintained, we will replace it by Seamonkey 1.0.3. This update affects: SUSE Linux Desktop 1, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 8, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9, Novell Linux Desktop 9, SUSE Linux 9.2 - 10.0. This will likely also require updates of evolution, beagle, and other dependent packages, so it might take some time. In general we recommend not using the Mozilla Suite any longer. - php4 / php5 security updates in preparation A critical PHP 4 / 5 problem was found, we are preparing updates for this problem. (CVE-2006-4020) - ethereal security update The last ethereal security update is currently being tested in QA. ______________________________________________________________________________ 3) Authenticity Verification and Additional Information - Announcement authenticity verification: SUSE security announcements are published via mailing lists and on Web sites. The authenticity and integrity of a SUSE security announcement is guaranteed by a cryptographic signature in each announcement. All SUSE security announcements are published with a valid signature. To verify the signature of the announcement, save it as text into a file and run the command gpg --verify <file> replacing <file> with the name of the file containing the announcement. The output for a valid signature looks like: gpg: Signature made <DATE> using RSA key ID 3D25D3D9 gpg: Good signature from "SuSE Security Team <>" where <DATE> is replaced by the date the document was signed. If the security team's key is not contained in your key ring, you can import it from the first installation CD. To import the key, use the command gpg --import gpg-pubkey-3d25d3d9-36e12d04.asc - Package authenticity verification: SUSE update packages are available on many mirror FTP servers all over the world. While this service is considered valuable and important to the free and open source software community, the authenticity and integrity of a package needs to be verified to ensure that it has not been tampered with. The internal RPM package signatures provide an easy way to verify the authenticity of an RPM package. Use the command rpm -v --checksig <file.rpm> to verify the signature of the package, replacing <file.rpm> with the filename of the RPM package downloaded. The package is unmodified if it contains a valid signature from with the key ID 9C800ACA. This key is automatically imported into the RPM database (on RPMv4-based distributions) and the gpg key ring of 'root' during installation. You can also find it on the first installation CD and included at the end of this announcement. - SUSE runs two security mailing lists to which any interested party may subscribe: - General Linux and SUSE security discussion. All SUSE security announcements are sent to this list. To subscribe, send an e-mail to <>. - SUSE's announce-only mailing list. Only SUSE's security announcements are sent to this list.
