Subject:  [Security Announce] [ MDKSA-2006:214-1 ] - Updated gv packages fix buffer overflow vulnerability
Date:  Mon, 4 Dec 2006 08:56:00 -0700

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:214-1 http://www.mandriva.com/security/ _______________________________________________________________________ Package : gv Date : December 4, 2006 Affected: 2006.0, 2007.0, Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0 _______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: Stack-based buffer overflow in the ps_gettext function in ps.c for GNU gv 3.6.2, and possibly earlier versions, allows user-assisted attackers to execute arbitrary code via a PostScript (PS) file with certain headers that contain long comments, as demonstrated using the DocumentMedia header. Packages have been patched to correct this issue. Update: The patch used in the previous update still left the possibility of causing X to consume unusual amounts of memory if gv is used to view a carefully crafted image designed to exploit CVE-2006-5864. This update uses an improved patch to address this issue. _______________________________________________________________________ References: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-5864 _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Linux 2006.0: 7226199941b3c2bae9d572fa18287cec 2006.0/i586/gv-3.6.1-4.3.20060mdk.i586.rpm cf07ebfa4c2b7b71a12e001ba72074cf 2006.0/SRPMS/gv-3.6.1-4.3.20060mdk.src.rpm Mandriva Linux 2006.0/X86_64: 2b6d68c47a6774c8b27ad8263ff89f96 2006.0/x86_64/gv-3.6.1-4.3.20060mdk.x86_64.rpm cf07ebfa4c2b7b71a12e001ba72074cf 2006.0/SRPMS/gv-3.6.1-4.3.20060mdk.src.rpm Mandriva Linux 2007.0: 63a4fc9774e298c2c6904ffcce648216 2007.0/i586/gv-3.6.1-7.2mdv2007.0.i586.rpm 17718d7117787714553282997268e4d6 2007.0/SRPMS/gv-3.6.1-7.2mdv2007.0.src.rpm Mandriva Linux 2007.0/X86_64: c8c9f156f94c083597a18476760df046 2007.0/x86_64/gv-3.6.1-7.2mdv2007.0.x86_64.rpm 17718d7117787714553282997268e4d6 2007.0/SRPMS/gv-3.6.1-7.2mdv2007.0.src.rpm Corporate 3.0: 7c282139a275fa0886e284649fe84549 corporate/3.0/i586/gv-3.5.8-31.2.C30mdk.i586.rpm ac4f70a00ad3a619a3be53d8f83b3325 corporate/3.0/SRPMS/gv-3.5.8-31.2.C30mdk.src.rpm Corporate 3.0/X86_64: 0844488c9a53873554e7d092ec372889 corporate/3.0/x86_64/gv-3.5.8-31.2.C30mdk.x86_64.rpm ac4f70a00ad3a619a3be53d8f83b3325 corporate/3.0/SRPMS/gv-3.5.8-31.2.C30mdk.src.rpm Corporate 4.0: 09d1689d5390bf63c927b3cce7d5ffa6 corporate/4.0/i586/gv-3.6.1-4.3.20060mlcs4.i586.rpm c5784a887c2c4bce4db77939e2625a01 corporate/4.0/SRPMS/gv-3.6.1-4.3.20060mlcs4.src.rpm Corporate 4.0/X86_64: 0ee8389a3bdcddc68f8814e36924ee09 corporate/4.0/x86_64/gv-3.6.1-4.3.20060mlcs4.x86_64.rpm c5784a887c2c4bce4db77939e2625a01 corporate/4.0/SRPMS/gv-3.6.1-4.3.20060mlcs4.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
