    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200711-23 (VMware Workstation and Player: Multiple vulnerabilities) Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in several VMware products. Neel Mehta and Ryan Smith (IBM ISS X-Force) discovered that the DHCP server contains an integer overflow vulnerability (CVE-2007-0062), an integer underflow vulnerability (CVE-2007-0063) and another error when handling malformed packets (CVE-2007-0061), leading to stack-based buffer overflows or stack corruption. Rafal Wojtczvk (McAfee) discovered two unspecified errors that allow authenticated users with administrative or login privileges on a guest operating system to corrupt memory or cause a Denial of Service (CVE-2007-4496, CVE-2007-4497). Another unspecified vulnerability related to untrusted virtual machine images was discovered (CVE-2007-5617). VMware products also shipped code copies of software with several vulnerabilities: Samba (GLSA-200705-15), BIND (GLSA-200702-06), MIT Kerberos 5 (GLSA-200707-11), Vixie Cron (GLSA-200704-11), shadow (GLSA-200606-02), OpenLDAP (CVE-2006-4600), PAM (CVE-2004-0813, CVE-2007-1716), GCC (CVE-2006-3619) and GDB (CVE-2006-4146). Impact : Remote attackers within a guest system could possibly exploit these vulnerabilities to execute code on the host system with elevated privileges or to cause a Denial of Service. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

    description Updated pam packages that resolves several bugs and security flaws are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Pluggable Authentication Modules (PAM) provide a system whereby administrators can set up authentication policies without having to recompile programs that handle authentication. A flaw was found in the way the Linux kernel handled certain SG_IO commands. Console users with access to certain device files had the ability to damage recordable CD drives. The way pam_console handled permissions of these files has been modified to disallow access. This change also required modifications to the cdrecord application. (CVE-2004-0813) A flaw was found in the way pam_console set console device permissions. It was possible for various console devices to retain ownership of the console user after logging out, possibly leaking information to an unauthorized user. (CVE-2007-1716) The pam_unix module provides authentication against standard /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files. The pam_stack module provides support for stacking PAM configuration files. Both of these modules contained small memory leaks which caused problems in applications calling PAM authentication repeatedly in the same process. All users of PAM should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.

    NASL id VMWARE_VMSA-2007-0006.NASL
    description Problems addressed by these patches : I Arbitrary code execution and denial of service vulnerabilities This release fixes a security vulnerability that could allow a guest operating system user with administrative privileges to cause memory corruption in a host process, and thus potentially execute arbitrary code on the host. (CVE-2007-4496) This release fixes a denial of service vulnerability that could allow a guest operating system to cause a host process to become unresponsive or exit unexpectedly. (CVE-2007-4497) Thanks to Rafal Wojtczvk of McAfee for identifying and reporting these issues. II Hosted products DHCP security vulnerabilities addressed This release fixes several vulnerabilities in the DHCP server that could enable a specially crafted packets to gain system-level privileges. (CVE-2007-0061, CVE-2007-0062, CVE-2007-0063) Thanks to Neel Mehta and Ryan Smith of the IBM Internet Security Systems X-Force for discovering and researching these vulnerabilities. III Windows based hosted product vulnerability in IntraProcessLogging.dll and vielib.dll. This release fixes a security vulnerability that could allow a malicious remote user to exploit the library file IntraProcessLogging.dll to overwrite files in a system. (CVE-2007-4059) This release fixes a security vulnerability that could allow a malicious remote user to exploit the library file vielib.dll to overwrite files in a system. (CVE-2007-4155) Thanks to the Goodfellas Security Research Team for discovering and researching these vulnerabilities. IV Escalation of privileges on Windows hosted systems This release fixes a security vulnerability in which Workstation was starting registered Windows services in an insecure manner. This vulnerability could allow a malicious user to escalate user privileges. Thanks to Foundstone for discovering this vulnerability. V Potential denial of service using VMware Player This release fixes a problem that prevented VMware Player from launching. This problem was accompanied by the error message VMware Player unrecoverable error: (player) Exception 0xc0000005 (access violation) has occurred. VI ESX Service Console updates a. Service console package Samba, has been updated to address the following issues : Various bugs were found in NDR parsing, used to decode MS-RPC requests in Samba. A remote attacker could have sent carefully crafted requests causing a heap overflow, which may have led to the ability to execute arbitrary code on the server. (CVE-2007-2446) Unescaped user input parameters were being passed as arguments to /bin/sh. A remote, authenticated, user could have triggered this flaw and executed arbitrary code on the server. Additionally, this flaw could be triggered by a remote unauthenticated user if Samba was configured to use the non-default username map script option. (CVE-2007-2447) Thanks to the Samba developers, TippingPoint, and iDefense for identifying and reporting these issues. Note: These issues only affect the service console network, and are not remote vulnerabilities for ESX Server hosts that have been set up with the security best practices provided by VMware. http://www.vmware.com/resources/techresources/726 b. Updated bind package for the service console fixes a flaw with the way ISC BIND processed certain DNS query responses. ISC BIND (Berkeley Internet Name Domain) is an implementation of the DNS (Domain Name System) protocols. Under some circumstances, a malicious remote user could launch a Denial-of-Service attack on ESX Server hosts that had enabled DNSSEC validation. (CVE-2007-0494) Note: These issues only affect the service console network, and are not remote vulnerabilities for ESX Server hosts that have been set up with the security best practices provided by VMware. http://www.vmware.com/resources/techresources/726 c. This patch provides updated service console package krb5 update. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) assigned the names CVE-2007-2442, CVE-2007-2443, and CVE-2007-2798 to these security issues. Thanks to Wei Wang of McAfee Avert Labs discovered these vulnerabilities. Note: The VMware service console does not provide the kadmind binary, and is not affected by these issues, but a update has been provided for completeness. d. Service console update for vixie-cron This patch provides an updated service console package vixie-cron. Cron is a standard UNIX daemon that runs specified programs at scheduled times. A denial of service issue was found in the way vixie-cron verified crontab file integrity. A local user with the ability to create a hardlink to /etc/crontab could potentially prevent vixie-cron from executing certain system cron jobs. (CVE-2007-1856) Thanks to Raphael Marichez for identifying this issue. e. Service console update for shadow-utils This patch provides an updated shadow-utils package. A new user's mailbox, when created, could have random permissions for a short period. This could enable a local malicious user to read or modify the mailbox. (CVE-2006-1174) f. Service console update for OpenLDAP This patch provides a updated OpenLDAP package. A flaw could allow users with selfwrite access to modify the distinguished name of any user, instead of being limited to modify only their own distinguished name. (CVE-2006-4600) g. Service console update for PAM This patch provides an updated PAM package A vulnerability was found that could allow console users with access to certain device files to cause damage to recordable CD drives. Certain file permissions have now been modified to disallow access. (CVE-2004-0813) A flaw was found with console device permissions. It was possible for various console devices to retain ownership of the previoius console user after logging out, which could result in leakage of information to an unauthorized user. (CVE-2007-1716) h. Service console update for GCC This patch provides security fixes for the service console GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) packages that include C, C++, Java, Fortran 77, Objective C, and Ada 95 GNU compilers and related support libraries. A flaw was found in the fastjar utility that could potentially allow a malicious user to create a JAR file which, if unpacked using fastjar, could write to any file that an authorized user had write access to. (CVE-2006-3619) Thanks to Jürgen Weigert for identifying this issue. i. Service Console update for GDB This patch provides a security fix for the service console GNU debugger (GDB). Various vulnerabilities were found in GDB. These vulnerabilities may allow a malicious user to deceive a user into loading debugging information into GDB, enabling the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user. (CVE-2006-4146)
