Debian LTS Advisory DLA-3205-1 [email protected]

Package : inetutils
Version : 2:1.9.4-7+deb10u2
CVE ID : CVE-2019-0053 CVE-2021-40491 CVE-2022-39028
Debian Bug : 945861 956084 993476

Several security vulnerabilities were discovered in inetutils, a
collection of common network programs.

CVE-2019-0053

inetutils' telnet client doesn't sufficiently validate environment
variables, which can lead to stack-based buffer overflows.  This
issue is limited to local exploitation from restricted shells.

CVE-2021-40491

inetutils' ftp client before 2.2 does not validate addresses
returned by PSV/LSPV responses to make sure they match the server
address.  A malicious server can exploit this flaw to reach services
in the client's private network.  (This is similar to curl's
CVE-2020-8284.)

CVE-2022-39028

inetutils's telnet server through 2.3 has a NULL pointer dereference
which a client can trigger by sending 0xff 0xf7 or 0xff 0xf8.  In a
typical installation, the telnetd application would crash but the
telnet service would remain available through inetd.  However, if the
telnetd application has many crashes within a short time interval,
the telnet service would become unavailable after inetd logs a
"telnet/tcp server failing (looping), service terminated" error.

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version
2:1.9.4-7+deb10u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your inetutils packages.
