a. vMA and Service Console update for newt to 0.52.2-12.el5_4.1

Newt is a programming library for color text mode, widget based user interfaces. Newt can be used to add stacked windows, entry widgets, checkboxes, radio buttons, labels, plain text fields, scrollbars, etc., to text mode user interfaces.

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way newt processes content that is to be displayed in a text dialog box.
A local attacker could issue a specially crafted text dialog box display request (direct or via a custom application), leading to a denial of service (application crash) or, potentially, arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running the application using the newt library.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2905 to this issue.

b. vMA and Service Console update for vMA package nfs-utils to 1.0.9-42.el5

The nfs-utils package provides a daemon for the kernel NFS server and related tools.

It was discovered that nfs-utils did not use tcp_wrappers correctly. Certain hosts access rules defined in ‘/etc/hosts.allow’ and ‘/etc/hosts.deny’ may not have been honored, possibly allowing remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2008-4552 to this issue.

c. vMA and Service Console package glib2 updated to 2.12.3-4.el5_3.1

GLib is the low-level core library that forms the basis for projects such as GTK+ and GNOME. It provides data structure handling for C, portability wrappers, and interfaces for such runtime functionality as an event loop, threads, dynamic loading, and an object system.

Multiple integer overflows in glib/gbase64.c in GLib before 2.20 allow context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long string that is converted either from or to a base64 representation.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2008-4316 to this issue.

d. vMA and Service Console update for openssl to 0.9.8e-12.el5

SSL is a toolkit implementing SSL v2/v3 and TLS protocols with full- strength cryptography world-wide.

Multiple denial of service flaws were discovered in OpenSSL’s DTLS implementation. A remote attacker could use these flaws to cause a DTLS server to use excessive amounts of memory, or crash on an invalid memory access or NULL pointer dereference.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-1377, CVE-2009-1378, CVE-2009-1379, CVE-2009-1386, CVE-2009-1387 to these issues.

An input validation flaw was found in the handling of the BMPString and UniversalString ASN1 string types in OpenSSL’s ASN1_STRING_print_ex() function. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially crafted X.509 certificate that could cause applications using the affected function to crash when printing certificate contents.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-0590 to this issue.

e. vMA and Service Console package bind updated to 9.3.6-4.P1.el5_4.1

It was discovered that BIND was incorrectly caching responses without performing proper DNSSEC validation, when those responses were received during the resolution of a recursive client query that requested DNSSEC records but indicated that checking should be disabled. A remote attacker could use this flaw to bypass the DNSSEC validation check and perform a cache poisoning attack if the target BIND server was receiving such client queries.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-4022 to this issue.

f. vMA and Service Console package expat updated to 1.95.8-8.3.el5_4.2.

Two buffer over-read flaws were found in the way Expat handled malformed UTF-8 sequences when processing XML files. A specially- crafted XML file could cause applications using Expat to fail while parsing the file.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-3560 and CVE-2009-3720 to these issues.

g. vMA and Service Console package openssh update to 4.3p2-36.el5_4.2

A Red Hat specific patch used in the openssh packages as shipped in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.4 (RHSA-2009:1287) loosened certain ownership requirements for directories used as arguments for the ChrootDirectory configuration options. A malicious user that also has or previously had non-chroot shell access to a system could possibly use this flaw to escalate their privileges and run commands as any system user.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2904 to this issue.

h. vMA and Service Console package ntp updated to ntp-4.2.2p1-9.el5_4.1.i386.rpm

A flaw was discovered in the way ntpd handled certain malformed NTP packets. ntpd logged information about all such packets and replied with an NTP packet that was treated as malformed when received by another ntpd. A remote attacker could use this flaw to create an NTP packet reply loop between two ntpd servers through a malformed packet with a spoofed source IP address and port, causing ntpd on those servers to use excessive amounts of CPU time and fill disk space with log messages.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-3563 to this issue.

i. vMA update for package kernel to 2.6.18-164.9.1.el5

Updated vMA package kernel addresses the security issues listed below.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-2849 to the security issue fixed in kernel 2.6.18-128.2.1

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-2695, CVE-2009-2908, CVE-2009-3228, CVE-2009-3286, CVE-2009-3547, CVE-2009-3613 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-128.6.1

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2009-3612, CVE-2009-3620, CVE-2009-3621, CVE-2009-3726 to the security issues fixed in kernel 2.6.18-128.9.1

j. vMA 4.0 updates for the packages kpartx, libvolume-id, device-mapper-multipath, fipscheck, dbus, dbus-libs, and ed

kpartx updated to 0.4.7-23.el5_3.4, libvolume-id updated to 095-14.20.el5 device-mapper-multipath package updated to 0.4.7-23.el5_3.4, fipscheck updated to 1.0.3-1.el5, dbus updated to 1.1.2-12.el5, dbus-libs updated to 1.1.2-12.el5, and ed package updated to 0.2-39.el5_2.

The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2008-3916, CVE-2009-1189 and CVE-2009-0115 to these issues.
