  1. Multiple vulnerabilities has been found and corrected in mysql: MySQL before 5.1.48 allows remote authenticated users with alter database privileges to cause a denial of service (server crash and database loss) via an ALTER DATABASE command with a #mysql50# string followed by a . (dot), .. (dot dot), ../ (dot dot slash) or similar sequence, and an UPGRADE DATA DIRECTORY NAME command, which causes MySQL to move certain directories to the server data directory (CVE-2010-2008). Additionally many security issues noted in the 5.1.49 release notes has been addressed with this advisory as well, such as: * LOAD DATA INFILE did not check for SQL errors and sent an OK packet even when errors were already reported. Also, an assert related to client-server protocol checking in debug servers sometimes was raised when it should not have been. (Bug#52512) (CVE-2010-3683) * Using EXPLAIN with queries of the form SELECT ... UNION ... ORDER BY (SELECT ... WHERE ...) could cause a server crash. (Bug#52711) (CVE-2010-3682) * The server could crash if there were alternate reads from two indexes on a table using the HANDLER interface. (Bug#54007) (CVE-2010-3681) * A malformed argument to the BINLOG statement could result in Valgrind warnings or a server crash. (Bug#54393) (CVE-2010-3679) * Incorrect handling of NULL arguments could lead to a crash for IN() or CASE operations when NULL arguments were either passed explicitly as arguments (for IN()) or implicitly generated by the WITH ROLLUP modifier (for IN() and CASE). (Bug#54477) (CVE-2010-3678) * Joins involving a table with with a unique SET column could cause a server crash. (Bug#54575) (CVE-2010-3677) * Use of TEMPORARY InnoDB tables with nullable columns could cause a server crash. (Bug#54044) (CVE-2010-3680) The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues. Update: Packages for 2009.1 was not provided with the MDVSA-2010:155 advisory. This advisory provides the missing packages.
  2. Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and corrected in the OpenOffice.org: Integer overflow allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted XPM file that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2009-2949). Heap-based buffer overflow allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted GIF file, related to LZW decompression (CVE-2009-2950). Integer underflow allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted sprmTDefTable table property modifier in a Word document (CVE-2009-3301). boundary error flaw allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted sprmTSetBrc table property modifier in a Word document (CVE-2009-3302). Lack of properly enforcing Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro security settings, which allows remote attackers to run arbitrary macros via a crafted document (CVE-2010-0136). User-assisted remote attackers are able to bypass Python macro security restrictions and execute arbitrary Python code via a crafted OpenDocument Text (ODT) file that triggers code execution when the macro directory structure is previewed (CVE-2010-0395). Impress module does not properly handle integer values associated with dictionary property items, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted PowerPoint document that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow, related to an integer truncation error (CVE-2010-2935). Integer overflow in the Impress allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted polygons in a PowerPoint document that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow (CVE-2010-2936). Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more: http://store.mandriva.com/product_info.php?cPath=149&products_id=490 This update provides OpenOffice.org packages have been patched to correct these issues and additional dependent packages.
  3. It was discovered the kdeplasma-addons packages were not rebuilt (relinked) against the libkdcraw.so.8 and libkexiv2.so.8 libraries provided by kdegraphics4-4.3.5-0.7mdv2010.0. This advisory addresses this problem.
  4. It was discovered the kipi-plugins packages were not rebuilt (relinked) against the libkdcraw.so.8 and libkexiv2.so.8 libraries provided by kdegraphics4-4.3.5-0.7mdv2010.0. This advisory addresses this problem.
  5. This is a maintenance and bugfix release of sudo which upgrades sudo to the latest 1.7.4p4 version.
  6. Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in pam: The pam_xauth module did not verify the return values of the setuid() and setgid() system calls. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to execute the xauth command with root privileges and make it read an arbitrary input file (CVE-2010-3316). The pam_mail module used root privileges while accessing users' files. In certain configurations, a local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to obtain limited information about files or directories that they do not have access to (CVE-2010-3435). The pam_namespace module executed the external script namespace.init with an unchanged environment inherited from an application calling PAM. In cases where such an environment was untrusted (for example, when pam_namespace was configured for setuid applications such as su or sudo), a local, unprivileged user could possibly use this flaw to escalate their privileges (CVE-2010-3853). Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more: http://store.mandriva.com/product_info.php?cPath=149&products_id=490 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
  7. A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in krb5: The merge_authdata function in kdc_authdata.c in the Key Distribution Center (KDC) in MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) 1.8.x before 1.8.4 does not properly manage an index into an authorization-data list, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon crash), or possibly obtain sensitive information, spoof authorization, or execute arbitrary code, via a TGS request, as demonstrated by a request from a Windows Active Directory client (CVE-2010-1322). The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue. Update: Update packages for MES5 were missing with the MDVSA-2010:202 advisory. This advisory provides the update packages.
  8. the only real way to tell is to download (from a trusted location) chkrootkit and run it Do not trust an already existing chkrootkit installation. let chkrootkit report to you, then post the results here.
  9. A security issue was identified and fixed in mozilla-thunderbird: Unspecified vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox 3.5.x through 3.5.14 and 3.6.x through 3.6.11, when JavaScript is enabled, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors, as exploited in the wild in October 2010 by the Belmoo malware (CVE-2010-3765). Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more: http://store.mandriva.com/product_info.php?cPath=149&products_id=490 Additionally, some packages which require so, have been rebuilt and are being provided as updates.
  10. Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in php: Stack consumption vulnerability in the filter_var function in PHP 5.2.x through 5.2.14 and 5.3.x through 5.3.3, when FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL mode is used, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption and application crash) via a long e-mail address string (CVE-2010-3710). A NULL pointer dereference was discovered in ZipArchive::getArchiveComment (CVE-2010-3709). A possible flaw was discovered in open_basedir (CVE-2010-3436). Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more: http://store.mandriva.com/product_info.php?cPath=149&products_id=490 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
  11. Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and corrected in dovecot: Dovecot 1.2.x before 1.2.15 and 2.0.x before 2.0.beta2 grants the admin permission to the owner of each mailbox in a non-public namespace, which might allow remote authenticated users to bypass intended access restrictions by changing the ACL of a mailbox, as demonstrated by a symlinked shared mailbox (CVE-2010-3779). Dovecot 1.2.x before 1.2.15 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (master process outage) by simultaneously disconnecting many (1) IMAP or (2) POP3 sessions (CVE-2010-3780). The ACL plugin in Dovecot 1.2.x before 1.2.13 propagates INBOX ACLs to newly created mailboxes in certain configurations, which might allow remote attackers to read mailboxes that have unintended weak ACLs (CVE-2010-3304). plugins/acl/acl-backend-vfile.c in Dovecot 1.2.x before 1.2.15 and 2.0.x before 2.0.5 interprets an ACL entry as a directive to add to the permissions granted by another ACL entry, instead of a directive to replace the permissions granted by another ACL entry, in certain circumstances involving the private namespace of a user, which allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended access restrictions via a request to read or modify a mailbox (CVE-2010-3706). plugins/acl/acl-backend-vfile.c in Dovecot 1.2.x before 1.2.15 and 2.0.x before 2.0.5 interprets an ACL entry as a directive to add to the permissions granted by another ACL entry, instead of a directive to replace the permissions granted by another ACL entry, in certain circumstances involving more specific entries that occur after less specific entries, which allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended access restrictions via a request to read or modify a mailbox (CVE-2010-3707). This advisory provides dovecot 1.2.15 which is not vulnerable to these issues
  12. Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and corrected in python: The asyncore module in Python before 3.2 does not properly handle unsuccessful calls to the accept function, and does not have accompanying documentation describing how daemon applications should handle unsuccessful calls to the accept function, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct denial of service attacks that terminate these applications via network connections (CVE-2010-3492). Multiple race conditions in smtpd.py in the smtpd module in Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.1, and 3.2 alpha allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon outage) by establishing and then immediately closing a TCP connection, leading to the accept function having an unexpected return value of None, an unexpected value of None for the address, or an ECONNABORTED, EAGAIN, or EWOULDBLOCK error, or the getpeername function having an ENOTCONN error, a related issue to CVE-2010-3492 (CVE-2010-3493). The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
  13. Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and corrected in python: Buffer underflow in the rgbimg module in Python 2.5 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a large ZSIZE value in a black-and-white (aka B/W) RGB image that triggers an invalid pointer dereference (CVE-2009-4134). Integer overflow in rgbimgmodule.c in the rgbimg module in Python 2.5 allows remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via a large image that triggers a buffer overflow. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2008-3143.12 (CVE-2010-1449). Multiple buffer overflows in the RLE decoder in the rgbimg module in Python 2.5 allow remote attackers to have an unspecified impact via an image file containing crafted data that triggers improper processing within the (1) longimagedata or (2) expandrow function (CVE-2010-1450). The asyncore module in Python before 3.2 does not properly handle unsuccessful calls to the accept function, and does not have accompanying documentation describing how daemon applications should handle unsuccessful calls to the accept function, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct denial of service attacks that terminate these applications via network connections (CVE-2010-3492). Multiple race conditions in smtpd.py in the smtpd module in Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.1, and 3.2 alpha allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (daemon outage) by establishing and then immediately closing a TCP connection, leading to the accept function having an unexpected return value of None, an unexpected value of None for the address, or an ECONNABORTED, EAGAIN, or EWOULDBLOCK error, or the getpeername function having an ENOTCONN error, a related issue to CVE-2010-3492 (CVE-2010-3493). Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more: http://store.mandriva.com/product_info.php?cPath=149&products_id=490 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
  14. A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in the Linux 2.6 kernel: A vulnerability in Linux kernel caused by insecure allocation of user space memory when translating system call inputs to 64-bit. A stack pointer underflow can occur when using the compat_alloc_user_space method with an arbitrary length input. (CVE-2010-3081) To update your kernel, please follow the directions located at: http://www.mandriva.com/en/security/kernelupdate
  15. It was discovered that the gjs packages wasn't rebuilt for the latest xulrunner version, this advisory fixes the problem.
  16. A vulnerability was discovered and corrected in xulrunner: Unspecified vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox 3.5.x through 3.5.14 and 3.6.x through 3.6.11, when JavaScript is enabled, allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors, as exploited in the wild in October 2010 by the Belmoo malware (CVE-2010-3765).

Please visit this link to learn more: http://store.mandriva.com/product_info.php?cPath=149&products_id=490 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
  17. The gkrellm package shipped in 2010.0 and 2010.1 was build without libsensor support, preventing the usage of hardware sensors in some cases, as reported in bug #55400.
  18. This update fixes several major issues in perl-URPM: - it fixes a crash in rpmdrake (#40309, #54521) - it fixes a segfault in rpmdrake & urpmi on 32bit machines (#61144)
  19. libgpod as shipped with Mandriva 2010.1 does not have support for HAL, the Hardware Abstraction Layer anymore. This is still needed for iPod support in KDE, so the update reenables HAL support.
  20. has an iPad :)

  24. Security issues were identified and fixed in mozilla-thunderbird: The SSL implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, Thunderbird before 3.0.9 and 3.1.x before 3.1.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 does not properly set the minimum key length for Diffie-Hellman Ephemeral (DHE) mode, which makes it easier for remote attackers to defeat cryptographic protection mechanisms via a brute-force attack (CVE-2010-3173). Unspecified vulnerability in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.5.x before 3.5.14, Thunderbird before 3.0.9, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2010-3174, CVE-2010-3175, CVE-2010-3176). Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, Thunderbird before 3.0.9 and 3.1.x before 3.1.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 do not properly handle certain modal calls made by javascript: URLs in circumstances related to opening a new window and performing cross-domain navigation, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy via a crafted HTML document (CVE-2010-3178). Stack-based buffer overflow in the text-rendering functionality in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, Thunderbird before 3.0.9 and 3.1.x before 3.1.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) via a long argument to the document.write method (CVE-2010-3179). Use-after-free vulnerability in the nsBarProp function in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, Thunderbird before 3.0.9 and 3.1.x before 3.1.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by accessing the locationbar property of a closed window (CVE-2010-3180). A certain application-launch script in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, Thunderbird before 3.0.9 and 3.1.x before 3.1.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 on Linux places a zero-length directory name in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH, which allows local users to gain privileges via a Trojan horse shared library in the current working directory (CVE-2010-3182). The LookupGetterOrSetter function in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, Thunderbird before 3.0.9 and 3.1.x before 3.1.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 does not properly support window.__lookupGetter__ function calls that lack arguments, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (incorrect pointer dereference and application crash) via a crafted HTML document (CVE-2010-3183). Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more: http://store.mandriva.com/product_info.php?cPath=149&products_id=490 Additionally, some packages which require so, have been rebuilt and are being provided as updates.
  25. Security issues were identified and fixed in firefox: Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, Thunderbird before 3.0.9 and 3.1.x before 3.1.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 recognize a wildcard IP address in the subject's Common Name field of an X.509 certificate, which might allow man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof arbitrary SSL servers via a crafted certificate issued by a legitimate Certification Authority (CVE-2010-3170). The SSL implementation in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, Thunderbird before 3.0.9 and 3.1.x before 3.1.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 does not properly set the minimum key length for Diffie-Hellman Ephemeral (DHE) mode, which makes it easier for remote attackers to defeat cryptographic protection mechanisms via a brute-force attack (CVE-2010-3173). Unspecified vulnerability in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.5.x before 3.5.14, Thunderbird before 3.0.9, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2010-3174, CVE-2010-3175, CVE-2010-3176). Multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in the Gopher parser in Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9, allow remote attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via a crafted name of a (1) file or (2) directory on a Gopher server (CVE-2010-3177). Mozilla Firefox before 3.5.14 and 3.6.x before 3.6.11, Thunderbird before 3.0.9 and 3.1.x before 3.1.5, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.9 do not properly handle certain modal calls made by javascript: URLs in circumstances related to opening a new window and performing cross-domain navigation, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy via a crafted HTML document (CVE-2010-3178).
