1) Solved Security Vulnerabilities

To avoid flooding mailing lists with SUSE Security Announcements for minor
issues, SUSE Security releases weekly summary reports for the low profile
vulnerability fixes. The SUSE Security Summary Reports do not list or
download URLs like the SUSE Security Announcements that are released for
more severe vulnerabilities.

Fixed packages for the following incidents are already available on our FTP
server and via the YaST Online Update.

- dnsmasq
New packages fix a buffer overflow and a NULL dereference in the TFTP
server code of dnsmasq.
Please note that the TFTP server is disabled by default.
(CVE-2009-2957, CVE-2009-2958)
Released for product: openSUSE 10.3-11.1, SLE11

- icu
icu did not properly handle invalid byte sequences during Unicode con-
version. Remote attackers could potentially exploit that to conduct
cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks (CVE-2009-0153).
Released for product: openSUSE 10.3-11.1, SLE10, SLE11

- libcurl3/libcurl2/curl/compat-curl2
An update of curl fixes the 0-character handling in the subject name of
a SSL certificate. This bug could be used to execute an undetected man-
in-the-middle-attack. (CVE-2009-2417)
Released for product: openSUSE 10.3-11.1, SLES9, SLE10, SLE11, OES, NLD

- Xerces-c/xerces-j2
The Xerces-c package was vulnerable to various bugs while parsing XML.
(CVE-2009-1885)
Released for product: openSUSE 10.3-11.1, SLES9, SLE10, SLE11

- tiff/libtiff
This update of the tiff package fixes various integer overflows in the
contained tools. (CVE-2009-2347)
Released for product: openSUSE 10.3-11.1, SLES9, SLE10, SLE11, OES, NLD

- acroread_ja
This update of acroread fixes the following vulnerabilities:
+ CVE-2009-1855: stack overflow that could lead to code execution
+ CVE-2009-1856: integer overflow with potential to lead to arbitrary
code execution
+ CVE-2009-1857: memory corruption with potential to lead to arbitrary
code execution
+ CVE-2009-1858: memory corruption with potential to lead to arbitrary
code execution
+ CVE-2009-1859: memory corruption with potential to lead to arbitrary
code execution
+ CVE-2009-0198: memory corruption with potential to lead to arbitrary
code execution
+ CVE-2009-0509
CVE-2009-0510
CVE-2009-0511
CVE-2009-0512: various heap overflows that could lead to code exe-
cution
+ CVE-2009-1861: heap overflow that could lead to code execution
Released for product: SLE10, SLE11

- xpdf
Specially crafted PDF documents could crash xpdf or potentially even
allow execution of arbitrary code (CVE-2009-0791).
Released for product: openSUSE 10.3-11.1, SLES9, SLE10, SLE11

- xemacs
Specially crafted tiff, png and jpeg images could cause integer overflows
in xemacs and possible system compromise. (CVE-2009-2688)
Released for product: openSUSE 10.3-11.1, SLES9, SLE10, SLE11

- mysql
The following vulnerabilities were fixed:
+ the COM_CREATE_DB and COM_DROP_DB suffered from format string
vulnerabilities (CVE-2009-2446)
+ the command line client was prone to cross-site scripting (XSS)
attacks (CVE-2008-4456)
Released for product: openSUSE 10.3-11.1, SLES9, SLE10, SLE11, OES, NLD

- squirrelmail/squirrelmail-plugins
The previous fix for a vulnerability that allowed an attacker to run
arbitrary commands on the server was incomplete (CVE-2009-1381).
Released for product: openSUSE 10.3

- OpenEXR
This update of OpenEXR fixes several integer overflows (CVE-2009-1720)
and a denial-of-service (probably execution of arbitrary code) bug
(CVE-2009-1721).
Released for product: openSUSE 10.3-11.1, SLE10, SLE11

- wireshark
Flaws in the AFS dissector allowed attackers to crash wireshark via
specially crafted network traffic (CVE-2009-2562).
Released for product: openSUSE 10.3-11.1, SLES9, SLE10, SLE11, OES, NLD

3) Authenticity Verification and Additional Information

- Announcement authenticity verification:

SUSE security announcements are published via mailing lists and on Web
sites. The authenticity and integrity of a SUSE security announcement is
guaranteed by a cryptographic signature in each announcement. All SUSE
security announcements are published with a valid signature.

To verify the signature of the announcement, save it as text into a file
and run the command

gpg --verify <file>

replacing <file> with the name of the file containing the announcement.
The output for a valid signature looks like:

gpg: Signature made <DATE> using RSA key ID 3D25D3D9
gpg: Good signature from "SuSE Security Team <security@xxxxxxx>"

where <DATE> is replaced by the date the document was signed.

If the security team's key is not contained in your key ring, you can
import it from the first installation CD. To import the key, use the
command

gpg --import gpg-pubkey-3d25d3d9-36e12d04.asc

- Package authenticity verification:

SUSE update packages are available on many mirror FTP servers all over the
world. While this service is considered valuable and important to the free
and open source software community, the authenticity and integrity of a
package needs to be verified to ensure that it has not been tampered with.

The internal RPM package signatures provide an easy way to verify the
authenticity of an RPM package. Use the command

rpm -v --checksig <file.rpm>

to verify the signature of the package, replacing <file.rpm> with the
filename of the RPM package downloaded. The package is unmodified if it
contains a valid signature from build@xxxxxxx with the key ID 9C800ACA.

This key is automatically imported into the RPM database (on RPMv4-based
distributions) and the gpg key ring of 'root' during installation. You can
also find it on the first installation CD and included at the end of this
announcement.

- SUSE runs two security mailing lists to which any interested party may
subscribe:

opensuse-security@xxxxxxxxxxxx
- General Linux and SUSE security discussion.
All SUSE security announcements are sent to this list.
To subscribe, send an e-mail to
<opensuse-security+subscribe@xxxxxxxxxxxx>.

opensuse-security-announce@xxxxxxxxxxxx
- SUSE's announce-only mailing list.
Only SUSE's security announcements are sent to this list.
To subscribe, send an e-mail to
<opensuse-security-announce+subscribe@xxxxxxxxxxxx>.

=====================================================================
SUSE's security contact is <security@xxxxxxxx> or <security@xxxxxxx>.
The <security@xxxxxxx> public key is listed below.
