-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Trustix Secure Linux Security Advisory #2006-0063 Package names: bind, openssh, rpm, texinfo Summary: Multiple vulnerabilities Date: 2006-11-15 Affected versions: Trustix Secure Linux 2.2 Trustix Secure Linux 3.0 Trustix Operating System - Enterprise Server 2 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Package description: bind BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Domain) is an implementation of the DNS (Domain Name System) protocols. BIND includes a DNS server (named), which resolves host names to IP addresses, and a resolver library (routines for applications to use when interfacing with DNS). A DNS server allows clients to name resources or objects and share the information with other network machines. The named DNS server can be used on workstations as a caching name server, but is generally only needed on one machine for an entire network. openssh Ssh (Secure Shell) a program for logging into a remote machine and for executing commands in a remote machine. It is intended to replace rlogin and rsh, and provide secure encrypted communications between two untrusted hosts over an insecure network. X11 connections and arbitrary TCP/IP ports can also be forwarded over the secure channel. OpenSSH is OpenBSD's rework of the last free version of SSH, bringing it up to date in terms of security and features, as well as removing all patented algorithms to seperate libraries (OpenSSL). rpm The RPM Package Manager is a powerful command line driven package management system capable of installing, uninstalling, verifying, querying, and updating software packages. Each software package consists of an archive of files along with information about the package like its version, a description, etc. texinfo Texinfo is a documentation system that can produce both online information and printed output from a single source file. Normally, you'd have to write two separate documents: one for online help or other online information and the other for a typeset manual or other printed work. Using Texinfo, you only need to write one source document. Then when the work needs revision, you only have to revise one source document. The GNU Project uses the Texinfo file format for most of its documentation. Problem description: bind < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 > < TSEL 2 > - New Upstream. - SECURITY Fix: Raise the minimum safe OpenSSL versions to OpenSSL 0.9.7l and OpenSSL 0.9.8d. Versions prior to these have known security flaws which are exploitable in named. [RT #16391] - Change the default RSA exponent from 3 to 65537. openssh < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 > < TSEL 2 > - New upstream. - SECURITY Fix: A weakness has been reported in OpenSSH, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions. The weakness is caused due to an error within the privilege separation monitor, which may weaken the authentication process (SA22771). rpm < TSL 3.0 > - SECURITY Fix: A vulnerability has been reported in RPM, caused due to a boundary error when processing certain RPM packages. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow by e.g. tricking a user into querying a specially crafted RPM package. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has assigned the name CVE-2006-5466 to this issue. texinfo < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 > < TSEL 2 > - SECURITY Fix: Buffer overflow in the texi2dvi and texindex commands allows local users to execute arbitrary code via a crafted Texinfo file. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has assigned the name CVE-2006-4810 to this issue. Action: We recommend that all systems with this package installed be upgraded. Please note that if you do not need the functionality provided by this package, you may want to remove it from your system.
