    Package name: gd samba sqlgrey sudo
    Summary: Various security fixes
    Date: 2004-11-15
    Affected versions: Trustix Secure Linux 1.5
                       Trustix Secure Linux 2.0

    Package description:
      gd is a graphics library. It allows your code to quickly draw images
      complete with lines, arcs, text, multiple colors, cut and paste from
      other images, and flood fills, and write out the result as a PNG or
      JPEG file. This is particularly useful in World Wide Web applications,
      where PNG and JPEG are two of the formats accepted for inline images
      by most browsers.

      Samba provides an SMB server which can be used to provide network
      services to SMB (sometimes called "Lan Manager") clients, including
      various versions of MS Windows, OS/2, and other Linux machines

      SQLgrey is a Postfix grey-listing policy service with auto-white-listing
      written in Perl with SQL database as storage backend.

      Sudo (superuser do) allows a system administrator to give certain
      users (or groups of users) the ability to run some (or all) commands
      as root while logging all commands and arguments. Sudo operates on a
      per-command basis. It is not a replacement for the shell. Features
      include: the ability to restrict what commands a user may run on a
      per-host basis, copious logging of each command (providing a clear
      audit trail of who did what), a configurable timeout of the sudo
      command, and the ability to use the same configuration file (sudoers)
      on many different machines.

    Problem description:

      There has been found serveral overflows in gd. This can be used to
      execute arbitary code in programs using the gd library.

      The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
      assigned the name CAN-2004-0941 and CAN-2004-0990 to these issues.

      Matt Linzbach made us aware that the maintainers of SQLgrey have issued
      a new release that fixes an SQL injection bug.

      From the Samba advisory:
      Invalid bounds checking in reply to certain trans2 requests
      could result in a buffer overrun in smbd. In order to exploit
      this defect, the attacker must be able to create files with very
      specific Unicode filenames on the Samba share.

      The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
      assigned the name CAN-2004-0882 to this issue.

      From the Samba advisory:
      A bug in the input validation routines used to match
      filename strings containing wildcard characters may allow
      a user to consume more than normal amounts of CPU cycles
      thus impacting the performance and response of the server.
      In some circumstances the server can become entirely

      The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
      assigned the name CAN-2004-0930 to this issue.

      Bash exported functions and the CDPATH variable are now stripped from
      the environment passed to the program to be executed.

      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.
