Subject:  MDKSA-2004:036 - Updated xchat packages fix remote vulnerability
Date:  21 Apr 2004 22:19:04 -0000

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 _______________________________________________________________________ Mandrakelinux Security Update Advisory _______________________________________________________________________ Package name: xchat Advisory ID: MDKSA-2004:036 Date: April 21st, 2004 Affected versions: 10.0, 9.2 ______________________________________________________________________ Problem Description: A remotely exploitable vulnerability was discovered in the Socks-5 proxy code in XChat. By default, socks5 traversal is disabled, and one would also need to connect to an attacker's own custom proxy server in order for this to be exploited. Successful exploitation could lead to arbitrary code execution as the user running XChat. The provided packages are patched to prevent this problem. _______________________________________________________________________ References: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-2004-0409 http://mail.nl.linux.org/xchat-announce/2004-04/msg00000.html ______________________________________________________________________ Updated Packages: Mandrakelinux 10.0: 7b35c6f47155aa2a279ae725f00e1ce6 10.0/RPMS/xchat-2.0.7-6.1.100mdk.i586.rpm 5576b90985a43bf934dffdcac3b8f489 10.0/RPMS/xchat-perl-2.0.7-6.1.100mdk.i586.rpm 82530135e527cd8ac99193368a81c3fb 10.0/RPMS/xchat-python-2.0.7-6.1.100mdk.i586.rpm 0135f544782942c6db5b5394bbc897f5 10.0/RPMS/xchat-tcl-2.0.7-6.1.100mdk.i586.rpm 1f80f67e7f5d26990aea8ec5c6a09f93 10.0/SRPMS/xchat-2.0.7-6.1.100mdk.src.rpm Mandrakelinux 9.2: 54bc115f40f7e54fcf4a2c4d52f5676b 9.2/RPMS/xchat-2.0.4-7.1.92mdk.i586.rpm b4762090848984ffc768be8b0eab5296 9.2/RPMS/xchat-perl-2.0.4-7.1.92mdk.i586.rpm 372ecbb839019c91a90a206e014eab5b 9.2/RPMS/xchat-python-2.0.4-7.1.92mdk.i586.rpm 79bda0db4e637c2f8517ad380503b139 9.2/RPMS/xchat-tcl-2.0.4-7.1.92mdk.i586.rpm 4bbadb5f6c4536a353e0e726ba1be312 9.2/SRPMS/xchat-2.0.4-7.1.92mdk.src.rpm Mandrakelinux 9.2/AMD64: ec523f612ef1b6f7b8387653c40b0e5b amd64/9.2/RPMS/xchat-2.0.4-7.1.92mdk.amd64.rpm 78a3374d55635a9f746a4c847abec7c6 amd64/9.2/RPMS/xchat-perl-2.0.4-7.1.92mdk.amd64.rpm 0960061780b52f51e560905abd24b321 amd64/9.2/RPMS/xchat-python-2.0.4-7.1.92mdk.amd64.rpm b4985a2e3f5e8d2bc249e6b7cc1d0cd3 amd64/9.2/RPMS/xchat-tcl-2.0.4-7.1.92mdk.amd64.rpm 4bbadb5f6c4536a353e0e726ba1be312 amd64/9.2/SRPMS/xchat-2.0.4-7.1.92mdk.src.rpm _______________________________________________________________________ To upgrade automatically use MandrakeUpdate or urpmi.
