Trustix Secure Linux Security Advisory #2006-0024

Package names: clamav, cyrus-sasl, kernel, libtiff, rsync, xorg-x11
Summary: Multiple vulnerabilities
Date: 2006-05-05
Affected versions: Trustix Secure Linux 2.2
Trustix Secure Linux 3.0
Trustix Operating System - Enterprise Server 2

- ------------------------------------------------------------------------
Package description:
Clam AntiVirus is a GPL anti-virus toolkit for UNIX. The main purpose of
this software is the integration with mail servers (attachment scanning).
The package provides a flexible and scalable multi-threaded daemon, a
command line scanner, and a tool for automatic updating via Internet.
The programs are based on a shared library distributed with package,
which you can use with your own software.

The cyrus-sasl package contains the Cyrus implementation of SASL.
SASL is the Simple Authentication and Security Layer, a method for
adding authentication support to connection-based protocols.

The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of your
Trustix Secure Linux operating system. The kernel handles the basic
functions of the operating system: memory allocation, process allocation,
device input and output, etc.

The libtiff package contains a library of functions for manipulating
TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) image format files. TIFF is a widely
used file format for bitmapped images. TIFF files usually end in the
.tif extension and they are often quite large.

Rsync uses a quick and reliable algorithm to very quickly bring
remote and host files into sync. Rsync is fast because it just
sends the differences in the files over the network (instead of
sending the complete files). Rsync is often used as a very powerful
mirroring process or just as a more capable replacement for the
rcp command. A technical report which describes the rsync algorithm
is included in this package.

X.org X11 is an open source implementation of the X Window System. It
provides the basic low level functionality which full fledged
graphical user interfaces (GUIs) such as GNOME and KDE are designed

Problem description:
clamav < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 >
- New Upstream.
- SECURITY Fix: A vulnerability has been reported in ClamAV caused due to
a boundary error within the HTTP client in the Freshclam command line
utility. This can be exploited to cause a stack-based buffer overflow
when the HTTP headers received from a web server exceeds 8KB.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the
name CVE-2006-1989 this issue.

cyrus-sasl < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 > < TSEL 2 >
- SECURITY Fix: Mu Security has reported a vulnerability in Cyrus SASL
library, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS.
The vulnerability is caused due to an unspecified error during
DIGEST-MD5 negotiation.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the
name CVE-2006-1721 this issue.

kernel < TSL 3.0 >
- New Upstream.
- SECURITY Fix: A vulnerability has been reported in Linux Kernel, which
can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
The vulnerability is caused due to missing checks on SCTP chunk sizes
in the SCTP-netfilter code and may result in an infinite loop exhausting
system resources.
- Directory traversal vulnerability in CIFS which allows local users to
escape chroot restrictions for an SMB-mounted filesystem via "..\\"

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the names CVE-2006-1527 and CVE-2006-1863 to these issues.

libtiff < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 > < TSEL 2 >
- SECURITY Fix: Tavis Ormandy has reported some vulnerabilities in LibTIFF,
which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS and potentially
to compromise a user's system.
- Several unspecified errors in the "TIFFFetchAnyArray()" function and in
the cleanup functions can be exploited to crash an application linked
against LibTIFF when a specially crafted TIFF image is processed.
- Integer overflow in the TIFFFetchData function in tif_dirread.c allows
context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly
execute arbitrary code via a crafted TIFF image.
- A double free error in tif_jpeg.c within the setfield/getfield methods
in the cleanup functions can be exploited to crash an application linked
against LibTIFF and may allow arbitrary code execution when a specially
crafted TIFF image is processed.
- The TIFFToRGB function in libtiff allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (crash) via a crafted TIFF image with Yr/Yg/Yb values
that exceed the YCR/YCG/YCB values, which triggers an out-of-bounds read.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the names CVE-2006-2024, CVE-2006-2025, CVE-2006-2026 and
CVE-2006-2120 these issues.

rsync < TSL 3.0 > < TSL 2.2 > < TSEL 2 >
- New Upstream.
- SECURITY Fix: A vulnerability has been reported in rsync caused due to
an integer overflow error in the "receive_xattr()" function within the
xattrs.diff patch. This can be exploited to cause a buffer overflow and
may allow arbitrary code execution via specially crafted extended

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the
name CVE-2006-2083 this issue.

xorg-x11 < TSL 3.0 >
- SECURITY Fix: A buffer overflow in the XRender extension allows any
X.Org user to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges. A typo
causes the code to mis-compute the size of memory allocations in the
XRenderCompositeTriStrip and XRenderCompositeTriFan requests.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned the
name CVE-2006-1526 this issue.

We recommend that all systems with this package installed be upgraded.
Please note that if you do not need the functionality provided by this
package, you may want to remove it from your system.
