-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2012:129-1 _______________________________________________________________________ Package : busybox Date : August 10, 2012 Affected: 2011. _______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: Multiple vulnerabilities was found and corrected in busybox: The decompress function in ncompress allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash), and possibly execute arbitrary code, via crafted data that leads to a buffer underflow (CVE-2006-1168). A missing DHCP option checking / sanitization flaw was reported for multiple DHCP clients. This flaw may allow DHCP server to trick DHCP clients to set e.g. system hostname to a specially crafted value containing shell special characters. Various scripts assume that hostname is trusted, which may lead to code execution when hostname is specially crafted (CVE-2011-2716). Additionally for Mandriva Enterprise Server 5 various problems in the ka-deploy and uClibc packages was discovered and fixed with this advisory. The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues. Update: The wrong set of packages was sent out with the MDVSA-2012:129 advisory that lacked the fix for CVE-2006-1168. This advisory provides the correct packages. _______________________________________________________________________ References: _______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandriva Linux 2011: bf11b9be27bee497a7033176f75786eb 2011/i586/busybox-1.18.4-3.2-mdv2011.0.i586.rpm a00544fb8799067f766cf8aa480d4e69 2011/i586/busybox-static-1.18.4-3.2-mdv2011.0.i586.rpm c906766804857a5ba80599610e380675 2011/SRPMS/busybox-1.18.4-3.2.src.rpm Mandriva Linux 2011/X86_64: af067c810ef4efc245b3de0cdf1e0d36 2011/x86_64/busybox-1.18.4-3.2-mdv2011.0.x86_64.rpm 63786971c42ab70966a56a1767c454b0 2011/x86_64/busybox-static-1.18.4-3.2-mdv2011.0.x86_64.rpm c906766804857a5ba80599610e380675 2011/SRPMS/busybox-1.18.4-3.2.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrivaUpdate or urpmi.
