[USN-1065-1] shadow vulnerability



===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-1065-1 February 15, 2011
shadow vulnerability
CVE-2011-0721
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 9.10
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Ubuntu 10.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 9.10:
passwd 1:4.1.4.1-1ubuntu2.2

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
passwd 1:4.1.4.2-1ubuntu2.2

Ubuntu 10.10:
passwd 1:4.1.4.2-1ubuntu3.2

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Kees Cook discovered that some shadow utilities did not correctly validate
user input. A local attacker could exploit this flaw to inject newlines into
the /etc/passwd file. If the system was configured to use NIS, this could
lead to existing NIS groups or users gaining or losing access to the system,
resulting in a denial of service or unauthorized access.
