Security Focus


1. HAHTsite Scenario Server Project File Name Buffer Overrun Vu...
BugTraq ID: 10033
Remote: Yes
Date Published: Apr 02 2004
Relevant URL: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/10033
Summary:
HAHTsite Scenario Server is reported to be prone to a remotely
exploitable buffer overrun vulnerability.
The issue may be triggered by submitting an HTTP GET request to the
vulnerable server component that specifies overly long project file
name parameters. hsrun.exe is name of the vulnerable component on Microsoft
Windows platforms. This could be exploited to execute arbitrary code
in the context of the server.
This issue is reported to affect HAHTsite Scenario Server 5.1 on
Windows, Solaris and Linux platforms. The name of the vulnerable component
will likely be different depending on the hosting platform.

2. Heimdal Kerberos Cross-Realm Trust Impersonation Vulnerabili...
BugTraq ID: 10035
Remote: No
Date Published: Apr 02 2004
Relevant URL: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/10035
Summary:
It has been reported that Heimdal is prone to a cross-realm trust
impersonation vulnerability. This issue is due to a failure of the
implementation to properly validate cross-realm requests.
An attacker may leverage this issue to mask their identity,
potentially conducting attacks or other nefarious activity while feigning to be
someone else.

3. eMule Remote Buffer Overflow Vulnerability
BugTraq ID: 10039
Remote: Yes
Date Published: Apr 03 2004
Relevant URL: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/10039
Summary:
eMule is prone to a remote buffer overflow vulnerability. This issue
is due to a failure of the application to properly validate buffer
boundaries during memory copy operations.
Successful exploitation would immediately produce a denial of service
condition in the affected process. This issue may also be leveraged to
execute code on the affected system within the security context of the
user running the vulnerable process.

4. FTE Multiple Local Unspecified Buffer Overflow Vulnerabiliti...
BugTraq ID: 10041
Remote: No
Date Published: Apr 04 2004
Relevant URL: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/10041
Summary:
It has been reported that vfte is prone to multiple unspecified buffer
overflow vulnerabilities. These issues are due to a failure of the
application to verify buffer boundaries while processing user supplied
input.
Successful exploitation would immediately produce a denial of service
condition in the affected process. This issue may also be leveraged to
execute code on the affected system with root privileges, as this
application is setuid root.

5. Context Texutil Insecure Temporary Log File Vulnerability
BugTraq ID: 10042
Remote: No
Date Published: Apr 05 2004
Relevant URL: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/10042
Summary:
The ConTeXt TeXUtil program creates log files in an insecure manner
when invoked with the '--silent' command line option. This could allow a
malicious local user to launch a symbolic link attack when such a
file is created. This could cause attacker-specified files that are
writeable by the user invoking the utility to be corrupted.

6. ADA IMGSVR GET Request Buffer Overflow Vulnerability
BugTraq ID: 10046
Remote: Yes
Date Published: Apr 05 2004
Relevant URL: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/10046
Summary:
A vulnerability has been reported in ImgSvr that may allow a remote
attacker to corrupt local process memory, potentially leading to
arbitrary code execution. This issue is due to a failure of the application to
properly validate the size of user supplied HTTP requests.
Successful exploitation would immediately produce a denial of service
condition in the affected process. This issue may also be leveraged to
execute code on the affected system within the security context of the
user running the vulnerable process.

7. SuSE YaST Online Update Insecure Temporary File Creation Vul...
BugTraq ID: 10047
Remote: No
Date Published: Apr 05 2004
Relevant URL: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/10047
Summary:
SuSE YaST Online Update reportedly creates temporary files in an
insecure manner.

The source of the problem is that the online_update program will
create temporary files using predictable filenames in a world writeable
location (/usr/tmp).
Since these file names are static, it may be trivial for an attacker
to create a symbolic link in its place. A malicious local user could
take advantage of this issue by mounting a symbolic link attack to corrupt
other system files, most likely resulting in destruction of data.
The vendor has reported that the problem is present in SUSE Linux 8.2
and 9.0.

8. ADA IMGSVR Directory Traversal Vulnerability
BugTraq ID: 10048
Remote: Yes
Date Published: Apr 05 2004
Relevant URL: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/10048
Summary:
Reportedly ImgSvr is prone to an issue that may allow an attacker to
view files that reside outside of the server root directory. This issue
is due to a failure of the application to properly sanitize user-supplied URI
data.
Successful exploitation of this vulnerability may allow a remote
attacker to gain access to sensitive information that may be used to launch
further attacks against a vulnerable system.

9. Multiple Monit Administration Interface Remote Vulnerabiliti...
BugTraq ID: 10051
Remote: Yes
Date Published: Apr 05 2004
Relevant URL: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/10051
Summary:
The remote administration interface of Monit has been reported to be
prone to multiple vulnerabilities.
The first issue reported may be exploited by a remote attacker to
trigger a denial of service. The issue presents itself when no password is
submitted as a part of a basic authentication request.
The second vulnerability, a stack-based buffer overflow vulnerability
has been reported to exist during basic authentication procedures. The
issue presents itself due to a lack of sufficient bounds checking performed
on user-supplied usernames.
A third issue, an off-by-one vulnerability, has also been reported to
affect Monit. The issue presents itself when a large POST submission
is handled. Depending on memory layout and compiler optimizations, this
issue may potentially be exploited on some platforms to allow an attacker to
influence the least significant byte of the stack frame base pointer.

10. Gentoo Portage Sandbox Insecure Temporary Lockfile Creation ...
BugTraq ID: 10060
Remote: No
Date Published: Apr 06 2004
Relevant URL: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/10060
Summary:
Gentoo portage has been reported prone to an insecure temporary file
creation vulnerability. The vulnerability exists because portage
creates a lockfile with a predictable name in a world writeable location.
An attacker may create many symbolic hard links in the
"/tmp" folder, named with incrementing filenames in an attempt to predict the PID of
the vulnerable process. These links will point to a file that the attacker
wishes to corrupt. When portage is executed the file that is linked
will be overwritten with a blank file with the privileges of the user who
is invoking the portage application.

11. Racoon IKE Daemon Unauthorized X.509 Certificate Connection ...
BugTraq ID: 10072
Remote: Yes
Date Published: Apr 07 2004
Relevant URL: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/10072
Summary:
The racoon IKE daemon is prone to a security vulnerability that may
allow unauthorized access. This issue may allow holders of valid X.509
certificates to make unauthorized connections to the VPN without being
required to be in possession of the corresponding private key.
Man-in-the-middle attacks are also possible.
This issue affects the racoon daemon included in IPsec-Tools for
Linux 2.6 Kernel and the version included in KAME's IPsec utilities.
