  • Story Type: Security; Groups: Debian
Maurycy Prodeus found a problem in cons.saver, a screensaver for the console that is included in the mc package. cons.saver does not check if it is started with a valid stdout, which combined with a bug in its check to see if its argument is a tty (it forgot to close the file-descriptor after opening the supposed tty) causes it to write a NUL character to the file given as its parameter.

Debian alert: New version of ghostscript released

  • Mailing list (Posted by dave on Nov 22, 2000 4:33 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Security; Groups: Debian
ghostscript uses temporary files to do some of its work. Unfortunately the method used to create those files wasn't secure: mktemp was used to create a name for a temporary file, but the file was not opened safely. A second problem is that during build the LD_RUN_PATH environment variable was set to the empty string, which causes the dynamic linker to look in the current directory for shared libraries.

Debian alert: New version of modutils released

  • Mailing list (Posted by dave on Nov 22, 2000 12:07 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Security; Groups: Debian
Sebastian Krahmer raised an issue in modutils. In an ideal world modprobe should trust the kernel to only pass valid parameters to modprobe. However he has found at least one local root exploit because high level kernel code passed unverified parameters direct from the user to modprobe. So modprobe no longer trusts kernel input and switches to a safemode.

Debian alert: No koules vulnerability

  • Mailing list (Posted by dave on Nov 22, 2000 12:06 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Security; Groups: Debian
Guido Bakker has reported a local root vulnerability that can result in local users gaining root permission on a host running koules.sndsrv.linux using a buffer overflow.

Debian alert: New version of elvis-tiny released

  • Mailing list (Posted by dave on Nov 22, 2000 11:53 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: Security; Groups: Debian
Topi Miettinen audited elvis-tiny and raised an issue covering the use and creation of temporary files. Those files are created with a predictable pattern and O_EXCL flag is not used when opening. This makes users of elvis-tiny vulnerable to race conditions and/or data lossage.
