-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedora Update Notification FEDORA-2011-15833 2011-11-13 04:38:34 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Name : libsocialweb Product : Fedora 16 Version : 0.25.20 Release : 1.fc16 URL : http://www.gnome.org/ Summary : A social network data aggregator Description : libsocialweb is a social data server which fetches data from the "social web", such as your friend's blog posts and photos, upcoming events, recently played tracks, and pending eBay* auctions. It also provides a service to update your status on web services which support it, such as MySpace* and Twitter*. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Update Information: CVE-2011-4129 A security flaw was found in the way the libsocialweb, a social network data aggregator, performed its initialization when this service start was initiated by the dbus daemon. Due to a deficiency in a way the libsocialweb service was initialized, an untrusted (non-SSL) network connection has been opened to remote Twitter service servers without explicit approval of the user, running the libsocialweb service on the local host. A remote attacker could use this flaw to conduct various MITM attacks and potentially alter integrity of the user account in question. * libsocialweb: The views will try and fetch content from the web service even if they aren't configured. * rest: enforce that the SSL certificate is valid -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ChangeLog: * Sat Nov 12 2011 Peter Robinson <pbrobinson@fedoraproject.org> 0.25.20-1 - update to 0.25.20. Fixes CVE-2011-4129, RHBZ 752022 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- References: [ 1 ] Bug #752022 - CVE-2011-4129 libsocialweb: Untrusted connection to Twitter without user's approval upon service start via dbus https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=752022 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.
