-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2008:226 http://www.mandriva.com/security/ _______________________________________________________________________ Package : ruby Date : November 6, 2008 Affected: 2008.0, 2008.1, Corporate 3.0, Corporate 4.0 _______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: A denial of service condition was found in Ruby's regular expression engine. If a Ruby script tried to process a large amount of data via a regular expression, it could cause Ruby to enter an infinite loop and crash (CVE-2008-3443). A number of flaws were found in Ruby that could allow an attacker to create a carefully crafted script that could allow for the bypass of certain safe-level restrictions (CVE-2008-3655). A denial of service vulnerability was found in Ruby's HTTP server toolkit, WEBrick. A remote attacker could send a specially-crafted HTTP request to a WEBrick server that would cause it to use an excessive amount of CPU time (CVE-2008-3656). An insufficient taintness check issue was found in Ruby's DL module, a module that provides direct access to the C language functions. This flaw could be used by an attacker to bypass intended safe-level restrictions by calling external C functions with the arguments from an untrusted tainted input (CVE-2008-3657). A denial of service condition in Ruby's XML document parsing module (REXML) could cause a Ruby application using the REXML module to use an excessive amount of CPU and memory via XML documents with large XML entitity definitions recursion (CVE-2008-3790). The Ruby DNS resolver library used predictable transaction IDs and a fixed source port when sending DNS requests. This could be used by a remote attacker to spoof a malicious reply to a DNS query (CVE-2008-3905). The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues. _______________________________________________________________________ References: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-3443 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-3655 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-3656 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-3657 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-3790 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-3905 _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Linux 2008.0: b0f0593d07a6631aaa701924c6beacff 2008.0/i586/ruby-1.8.6-5.3mdv2008.0.i586.rpm 7d914e909536c61b2ce0ad112229054c 2008.0/i586/ruby-devel-1.8.6-5.3mdv2008.0.i586.rpm 35ab076f8519d913074acb3f8add7365 2008.0/i586/ruby-doc-1.8.6-5.3mdv2008.0.i586.rpm 0e2b9e08dd9180b17391f0dc1d88bc64 2008.0/i586/ruby-tk-1.8.6-5.3mdv2008.0.i586.rpm df8cd74ee6670f3f016c5e1b7912ba2a 2008.0/SRPMS/ruby-1.8.6-5.3mdv2008.0.src.rpm Mandriva Linux 2008.0/X86_64: 198e6e4c2ae919c066d900e1d44a8ea6 2008.0/x86_64/ruby-1.8.6-5.3mdv2008.0.x86_64.rpm fc7e8c154348d0921f0d2002f3ee0fa9 2008.0/x86_64/ruby-devel-1.8.6-5.3mdv2008.0.x86_64.rpm 62027ed3409c5f56d7a07128246bdd7e 2008.0/x86_64/ruby-doc-1.8.6-5.3mdv2008.0.x86_64.rpm e624bee3bc855bbd2068b3c850601926 2008.0/x86_64/ruby-tk-1.8.6-5.3mdv2008.0.x86_64.rpm df8cd74ee6670f3f016c5e1b7912ba2a 2008.0/SRPMS/ruby-1.8.6-5.3mdv2008.0.src.rpm Mandriva Linux 2008.1: f88546be7edc6f3801915cedd95fb1e0 2008.1/i586/ruby-1.8.6-9p114.2mdv2008.1.i586.rpm 000b10c2fbb34006a7222b1af111a42a 2008.1/i586/ruby-devel-1.8.6-9p114.2mdv2008.1.i586.rpm 3f84b7b9a3b7d293ae52464336bf7dc5 2008.1/i586/ruby-doc-1.8.6-9p114.2mdv2008.1.i586.rpm 88d2ae0a40e5614cde80ba249ff6fef9 2008.1/i586/ruby-tk-1.8.6-9p114.2mdv2008.1.i586.rpm eb601f21a3a04aaccd8fdd98f31c553e 2008.1/SRPMS/ruby-1.8.6-9p114.2mdv2008.1.src.rpm Mandriva Linux 2008.1/X86_64: a372532439a737e65f2685855d3c9109 2008.1/x86_64/ruby-1.8.6-9p114.2mdv2008.1.x86_64.rpm 7eaa8e8b04ad12d690f8e56fb90ada6f 2008.1/x86_64/ruby-devel-1.8.6-9p114.2mdv2008.1.x86_64.rpm 2d81cd9c9f1998c0cc18a188740b022d 2008.1/x86_64/ruby-doc-1.8.6-9p114.2mdv2008.1.x86_64.rpm 37bb46235a75babe11c37caa3e80169e 2008.1/x86_64/ruby-tk-1.8.6-9p114.2mdv2008.1.x86_64.rpm eb601f21a3a04aaccd8fdd98f31c553e 2008.1/SRPMS/ruby-1.8.6-9p114.2mdv2008.1.src.rpm Corporate 3.0: e218f9c5549d5524a70fdc648be21766 corporate/3.0/i586/ruby-1.8.1-1.11.C30mdk.i586.rpm c414540664946e719205cc8ca4263564 corporate/3.0/i586/ruby-devel-1.8.1-1.11.C30mdk.i586.rpm 34885696510659a992227caaffc7dbe2 corporate/3.0/i586/ruby-doc-1.8.1-1.11.C30mdk.i586.rpm f226fe7a6ed268c96cc7ebba82552288 corporate/3.0/i586/ruby-tk-1.8.1-1.11.C30mdk.i586.rpm 1dfa0afea4caf035cd5ada43178c2ca6 corporate/3.0/SRPMS/ruby-1.8.1-1.11.C30mdk.src.rpm Corporate 3.0/X86_64: c64d31b7335cd132cc55b5cc0e83b29e corporate/3.0/x86_64/ruby-1.8.1-1.11.C30mdk.x86_64.rpm 3cca31c2e518eb9500c6961ed3b63952 corporate/3.0/x86_64/ruby-devel-1.8.1-1.11.C30mdk.x86_64.rpm 5e700cfbd59a963514bae93fb8d40dd7 corporate/3.0/x86_64/ruby-doc-1.8.1-1.11.C30mdk.x86_64.rpm 9358cc3244596e812a85e5ccf4d46f7e corporate/3.0/x86_64/ruby-tk-1.8.1-1.11.C30mdk.x86_64.rpm 1dfa0afea4caf035cd5ada43178c2ca6 corporate/3.0/SRPMS/ruby-1.8.1-1.11.C30mdk.src.rpm Corporate 4.0: ea4101b61511cbd99ec83ee7f9c4e45b corporate/4.0/i586/ruby-1.8.2-7.8.20060mlcs4.i586.rpm b2390656cf0a64924b2f2f8447201f07 corporate/4.0/i586/ruby-devel-1.8.2-7.8.20060mlcs4.i586.rpm 59ebdc2d52f835bbd0a30c06516e9188 corporate/4.0/i586/ruby-doc-1.8.2-7.8.20060mlcs4.i586.rpm a5d04af4072f84a0fcd02e8367a6e895 corporate/4.0/i586/ruby-tk-1.8.2-7.8.20060mlcs4.i586.rpm ba2d3c2e6e80eb1a75beef6974dc4ce8 corporate/4.0/SRPMS/ruby-1.8.2-7.8.20060mlcs4.src.rpm Corporate 4.0/X86_64: a3f6881a877878c369b44ebb7f4b19b6 corporate/4.0/x86_64/ruby-1.8.2-7.8.20060mlcs4.x86_64.rpm 173d10379f418d0ff45250428f4afb0b corporate/4.0/x86_64/ruby-devel-1.8.2-7.8.20060mlcs4.x86_64.rpm 4ac867f94c8edb8f905d3cb5baa38a70 corporate/4.0/x86_64/ruby-doc-1.8.2-7.8.20060mlcs4.x86_64.rpm 378b79e48075344eb0f4078e8a6a2b6b corporate/4.0/x86_64/ruby-tk-1.8.2-7.8.20060mlcs4.x86_64.rpm ba2d3c2e6e80eb1a75beef6974dc4ce8 corporate/4.0/SRPMS/ruby-1.8.2-7.8.20060mlcs4.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
