-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Trustix Secure Linux Security Advisory #2007-0007 Package names: fetchmail, gd, php, postgresql, samba Summary: Multiple vulnerabilities Date: 2007-02-13 Affected versions: Trustix Secure Linux 2.2 Trustix Secure Linux 3.0 Trustix Operating System - Enterprise Server 2 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Package description: fetchmail Fetchmail is a remote mail retrieval and forwarding utility intended for use over on-demand TCP/IP links, like SLIP or PPP connections. Fetchmail supports every remote-mail protocol currently in use on the Internet (POP2, POP3, RPOP, APOP, KPOP, all IMAPs, ESMTP ETRN, IPv6,and IPSEC) for retrieval. Then Fetchmail forwards the mail through SMTP so you can read it through your favorite mail client. gd gd is a graphics library. It allows your code to quickly draw images complete with lines, arcs, text, multiple colors, cut and paste from other images, and flood fills, and write out the result as a PNG or JPEG file. This is particularly useful in World Wide Web applications, where PNG and JPEG are two of the formats accepted for inline images by most browsers. php PHP is an HTML-embedded scripting language. PHP attempts to make it easy for developers to write dynamically generated web pages. PHP also offers built-in database integration for several commercial and non-commercial database management systems, so writing a database-enabled web page with PHP is fairly simple. The most common use of PHP coding is probably as a replacement for CGI scripts. The mod_php module enables the Apache web server to understand and process the embedded PHP language in web pages. postgresql PostgreSQL is an advanced Object-Relational database management system (DBMS) that supports almost all SQL constructs (including transactions, subselects and user-defined types and functions). The postgresql package includes the client programs and libraries that you'll need to access a PostgreSQL DBMS server. These PostgreSQL client programs are programs that directly manipulate the internal structure of PostgreSQL databases on a PostgreSQL server. These client programs can be located on the same machine with the PostgreSQL server, or may be on a remote machine which accesses a PostgreSQL server over a network connection. This package contains the docs in HTML for the whole package, as well as command-line utilities for managing PostgreSQL databases on a PostgreSQL server. samba Samba provides an SMB server which can be used to provide network services to SMB (sometimes called "Lan Manager") clients, including various versions of MS Windows, OS/2, and other Linux machines. Samba uses NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NetBT) protocols and does NOT need NetBEUI (Microsoft Raw NetBIOS frame) protocol. Problem description: fetchmail < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 > - SECURITY Fix: Fetchmail does not properly enforce TLS and may transmit cleartext passwords over unsecured links if certain circumstances occur, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive information via man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks. - A vulnerability has been reported in Fetchmail caused due to a NULL pointer dereference error when rejecting a message sent to an MDA, which could be exploited by attackers to cause a denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has assigned the names CVE-2006-5867 and CVE-2006-5974 to these issues. gd < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 > - SECURITY Fix: Buffer overflow in the gdImageStringFTEx function in gdft.c in GD Graphics Library allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted string with a JIS encoded font. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has assigned the name CVE-2007-0455 to this issue. php < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 > - New Upstream. - Includes fix for php "out of memory" error, Bug #2062. - Multiple Security fixes. postgresql < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 > < TSEL 2 > - New upstream. - SECURITY Fix: An unspecified error can be used to suppress certain checks, which ensure that SQL functions return the correct data type. This can be exploited to crash the database backend or disclose potentially sensitive information. - An unspecified error when changing the data type of a table column can be exploited to crash the database backend or disclose potentially sensitive information. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has assigned the names CVE-2007-0555 and CVE-2007-0556 to these issues. samba < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 > < TSEL 2 > - New upstream. - SECURITY Fix: smbd allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (memory and CPU exhaustion) by renaming a file in a way that prevents a request from being removed from the deferred open queue, which triggers an infinite loop. - Buffer overflow in the library, as used in the winbindd daemon, allows attackers to execute arbitrary code via the (1) gethostbyname and (2) getipnodebyname functions. - Format string vulnerability in the VFS module allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via format string specifiers in a filename on an AFS file system, which is not properly handled during Windows ACL mapping. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project ( has assigned the names CVE-2007-0452, CVE-2007-0453 and CVE-2007-0454 to these issue.
