    description Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and fixed in glibc : The addmntent function in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.13 and earlier does not report an error status for failed attempts to write to the /etc/mtab file, which makes it easier for local users to trigger corruption of this file, as demonstrated by writes from a process with a small RLIMIT_FSIZE value, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-0296 (CVE-2011-1089). Integer overflow in posix/fnmatch.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.13 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a long UTF8 string that is used in an fnmatch call with a crafted pattern argument, a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-1071 (CVE-2011-1659). crypt_blowfish before 1.1, as used in glibc on certain platforms, does not properly handle 8-bit characters, which makes it easier for context-dependent attackers to determine a cleartext password by leveraging knowledge of a password hash (CVE-2011-2483). The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

A local attacker could possibly use this flaw to inject malformed lines into /etc/mtab via certain setuid mount helpers, if the attacker were allowed to mount to an arbitrary directory under their control. (CVE-2010-0296) It was discovered that the glibc fnmatch() function did not properly restrict the use of alloca(). If the function was called on sufficiently large inputs, it could cause an application using fnmatch() to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the application. (CVE-2011-1071) It was discovered that the locale command did not produce properly escaped output as required by the POSIX specification. If an attacker were able to set the locale environment variables in the environment of a script that performed shell evaluation on the output of the locale command, and that script were run with different privileges than the attacker's, it could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the script.

    description It was discovered that the GNU C Library did not properly handle integer overflows in the timezone handling code. An attacker could use this to possibly execute arbitrary code by convincing an application to load a maliciously constructed tzfile. (CVE-2009-5029) It was discovered that the GNU C Library did not properly handle passwd.adjunct.byname map entries in the Network Information Service (NIS) code in the name service caching daemon (nscd). An attacker could use this to obtain the encrypted passwords of NIS accounts. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. (CVE-2010-0015) Chris Evans reported that the GNU C Library did not properly calculate the amount of memory to allocate in the fnmatch() code. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code via a maliciously crafted UTF-8 string. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Ubuntu 10.10. (CVE-2011-1071) Tomas Hoger reported that an additional integer overflow was possible in the GNU C Library fnmatch() code. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service via a maliciously crafted UTF-8 string. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Ubuntu 10.10 and Ubuntu 11.04. (CVE-2011-1659) Dan Rosenberg discovered that the addmntent() function in the GNU C Library did not report an error status for failed attempts to write to the /etc/mtab file. This could allow an attacker to corrupt /etc/mtab, possibly causing a denial of service or otherwise manipulate mount options. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Ubuntu 10.10 and Ubuntu 11.04. (CVE-2011-1089) Harald van Dijk discovered that the locale program included with the GNU C library did not properly quote its output. This could allow a local attacker to possibly execute arbitrary code using a crafted localization string that was evaluated in a shell script. This issue only affected Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Ubuntu 10.10. (CVE-2011-1095) It was discovered that the GNU C library loader expanded the $ORIGIN dynamic string token when RPATH is composed entirely of this token. This could allow an attacker to gain privilege via a setuid program that had this RPATH value. (CVE-2011-1658) It was discovered that the GNU C library implementation of memcpy optimized for Supplemental Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (SSSE3) contained a possible integer overflow. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code. This issue only affected Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. (CVE-2011-2702) John Zimmerman discovered that the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) implementation in the GNU C Library did not properly handle large numbers of connections. This could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2011-4609) It was discovered that the GNU C Library vfprintf() implementation contained a possible integer overflow in the format string protection code offered by FORTIFY_SOURCE. An attacker could use this flaw in conjunction with a format string vulnerability to bypass the format string protection and possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-0864). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

    description Updated glibc packages that fix multiple security issues and one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. The glibc packages contain the standard C libraries used by multiple programs on the system. These packages contain the standard C and the standard math libraries. Without these two libraries, a Linux system cannot function properly. An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in the way the glibc library read timezone files. If a carefully-crafted timezone file was loaded by an application linked against glibc, it could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2009-5029) A flaw was found in the way the ldd utility identified dynamically linked libraries. If an attacker could trick a user into running ldd on a malicious binary, it could result in arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running ldd. (CVE-2009-5064) It was discovered that the glibc addmntent() function, used by various mount helper utilities, did not sanitize its input properly. A local attacker could possibly use this flaw to inject malformed lines into the mtab (mounted file systems table) file via certain setuid mount helpers, if the attacker were allowed to mount to an arbitrary directory under their control. (CVE-2010-0296) An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in the way the glibc library loaded ELF (Executable and Linking Format) files. If a carefully-crafted ELF file was loaded by an application linked against glibc, it could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2010-0830) It was discovered that the glibc fnmatch() function did not properly restrict the use of alloca(). If the function was called on sufficiently large inputs, it could cause an application using fnmatch() to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the application. (CVE-2011-1071) It was found that the glibc addmntent() function, used by various mount helper utilities, did not handle certain errors correctly when updating the mtab (mounted file systems table) file. If such utilities had the setuid bit set, a local attacker could use this flaw to corrupt the mtab file. (CVE-2011-1089) It was discovered that the locale command did not produce properly escaped output as required by the POSIX specification. If an attacker were able to set the locale environment variables in the environment of a script that performed shell evaluation on the output of the locale command, and that script were run with different privileges than the attacker's, it could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the script. (CVE-2011-1095) An integer overflow flaw was found in the glibc fnmatch() function. If an attacker supplied a long UTF-8 string to an application linked against glibc, it could cause the application to crash. (CVE-2011-1659) A denial of service flaw was found in the remote procedure call (RPC) implementation in glibc. A remote attacker able to open a large number of connections to an RPC service that is using the RPC implementation from glibc, could use this flaw to make that service use an excessive amount of CPU time. (CVE-2011-4609) Red Hat would like to thank the Ubuntu Security Team for reporting CVE-2010-0830, and Dan Rosenberg for reporting CVE-2011-1089. The Ubuntu Security Team acknowledges Dan Rosenberg as the original reporter of CVE-2010-0830. This update also fixes the following bug : * When using an nscd package that is a different version than the glibc package, the nscd service could fail to start. This update makes the nscd package require a specific glibc version to prevent this problem. (BZ#657009) Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.

A remote attacker able to open a large number of connections to an RPC service that is using the RPC implementation from glibc, could use this flaw to make that service use an excessive amount of CPU time. (CVE-2011-4609) Red Hat would like to thank the Ubuntu Security Team for reporting CVE-2010-0830, and Dan Rosenberg for reporting CVE-2011-1089. The Ubuntu Security Team acknowledges Dan Rosenberg as the original reporter of CVE-2010-0830. This update also fixes the following bug : * When using an nscd package that is a different version than the glibc package, the nscd service could fail to start. This update makes the nscd package require a specific glibc version to prevent this problem. (BZ#657009) Users should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.

    description a. Service Console update for DHCP The DHCP client daemon, dhclient, does not properly sanatize certain options in DHCP server replies. An attacker could send a specially crafted DHCP server reply, that is saved on the client system and evaluated by a process that assumes the option is trusted. This could lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the evaluating process. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2011-0997 to this issue. b. Service Console update for glibc This patch updates the glibc package for ESX service console to glibc-2.5-58.7602.vmw. This fixes multiple security issues in glibc, glibc-common and nscd including possible local privilege escalation. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the identifiers CVE-2010-0296, CVE-2011-0536, CVE-2011-1095, CVE-2011-1071, CVE-2011-1658 and CVE-2011-1659 to these issues.

    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2011:0413 : Updated glibc packages that fix three security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. The glibc packages contain the standard C libraries used by multiple programs on the system. These packages contain the standard C and the standard math libraries. Without these two libraries, a Linux system cannot function properly. The fix for CVE-2010-3847 introduced a regression in the way the dynamic loader expanded the $ORIGIN dynamic string token specified in the RPATH and RUNPATH entries in the ELF library header. A local attacker could use this flaw to escalate their privileges via a setuid or setgid program using such a library. (CVE-2011-0536) It was discovered that the glibc fnmatch() function did not properly restrict the use of alloca(). If the function was called on sufficiently large inputs, it could cause an application using fnmatch() to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the application. (CVE-2011-1071) It was discovered that the locale command did not produce properly escaped output as required by the POSIX specification. If an attacker were able to set the locale environment variables in the environment of a script that performed shell evaluation on the output of the locale command, and that script were run with different privileges than the attacker's, it could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the script. (CVE-2011-1095) All users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues.

    description Updated glibc packages that fix multiple security issues and one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. The glibc packages contain the standard C libraries used by multiple programs on the system. These packages contain the standard C and the standard math libraries. Without these two libraries, a Linux system cannot function properly. An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in the way the glibc library read timezone files. If a carefully-crafted timezone file was loaded by an application linked against glibc, it could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2009-5029) A flaw was found in the way the ldd utility identified dynamically linked libraries. If an attacker could trick a user into running ldd on a malicious binary, it could result in arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running ldd. (CVE-2009-5064) It was discovered that the glibc addmntent() function, used by various mount helper utilities, did not sanitize its input properly. A local attacker could possibly use this flaw to inject malformed lines into the mtab (mounted file systems table) file via certain setuid mount helpers, if the attacker were allowed to mount to an arbitrary directory under their control. (CVE-2010-0296) An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in the way the glibc library loaded ELF (Executable and Linking Format) files. If a carefully-crafted ELF file was loaded by an application linked against glibc, it could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2010-0830) It was discovered that the glibc fnmatch() function did not properly restrict the use of alloca(). If the function was called on sufficiently large inputs, it could cause an application using fnmatch() to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the application. (CVE-2011-1071) It was found that the glibc addmntent() function, used by various mount helper utilities, did not handle certain errors correctly when updating the mtab (mounted file systems table) file. If such utilities had the setuid bit set, a local attacker could use this flaw to corrupt the mtab file. (CVE-2011-1089) It was discovered that the locale command did not produce properly escaped output as required by the POSIX specification. If an attacker were able to set the locale environment variables in the environment of a script that performed shell evaluation on the output of the locale command, and that script were run with different privileges than the attacker's, it could execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the script.

    description Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and fixed in glibc : Multiple untrusted search path vulnerabilities in elf/dl-object.c in certain modified versions of the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6), including glibc-2.5-49.el5_5.6 and glibc-2.12-1.7.el6_0.3 in Red Hat Enterprise Linux, allow local users to gain privileges via a crafted dynamic shared object (DSO) in a subdirectory of the current working directory during execution of a (1) setuid or (2) setgid program that has in (a) RPATH or (b) RUNPATH. NOTE: this issue exists because of an incorrect fix for CVE-2010-3847 (CVE-2011-0536). The GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.12.2 and Embedded GLIBC (EGLIBC) allow context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a long UTF8 string that is used in an fnmatch call, aka a stack extension attack, a related issue to CVE-2010-2898, as originally reported for use of this library by Google Chrome (CVE-2011-1071). The addmntent function in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.13 and earlier does not report an error status for failed attempts to write to the /etc/mtab file, which makes it easier for local users to trigger corruption of this file, as demonstrated by writes from a process with a small RLIMIT_FSIZE value, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-0296 (CVE-2011-1089). locale/programs/locale.c in locale in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.13 does not quote its output, which might allow local users to gain privileges via a crafted localization environment variable, in conjunction with a program that executes a script that uses the eval function (CVE-2011-1095). Integer overflow in posix/fnmatch.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.13 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a long UTF8 string that is used in an fnmatch call with a crafted pattern argument, a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-1071 (CVE-2011-1659). crypt_blowfish before 1.1, as used in glibc on certain platforms, does not properly handle 8-bit characters, which makes it easier for context-dependent attackers to determine a cleartext password by leveraging knowledge of a password hash (CVE-2011-2483). The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
