______________________________________________________________________________

1)  problem description, brief discussion, solution, upgrade information

    Two vulnerabilities were found in the "tiny" web-server thttpd.
    The first bug is a buffer overflow that can be exploited remotely
    to overwrite the EBP register of the stack. Due to memory-alignment of
    the stack done by gcc 3.x this bug can not be exploited. All thttpd
    versions mentioned in this advisory are compiled with gcc 3.x and are
    therefore not exploitable.
    The other bug occurs in the virtual-hosting code of thttpd. A remote
    attacker can bypass the virtual-hosting mechanism to read arbitrary
    files.

    Please download the update package for your distribution and verify its
    integrity by the methods listed in section 3) of this announcement.
    Then, install the package using the command "rpm -Fhv file.rpm" to apply
    the update.
    Our maintenance customers are being notified individually. The packages
    are being offered to install from the maintenance web.

2)  Pending vulnerabilities in SUSE Distributions and Workarounds:

  - libnids
    New libnids packages were released to stop remote command execution
    due to a memory corruption in the TCP reassembly code. (CAN-2003-0850)
    Please download them from our FTP servers.

  - KDE
    New KDE packages are currently being tested. These packages fixes
    several vulnerabilities:
      + remote root compromise (CAN-2003-0690)
      + weak cookies (CAN-2003-0692)
      + SSL man-in-the-middle attack
      + information leak through HTML-referrer (CAN-2003-0459)
    The packages will be release as soon as testing is finished.

  - postgresql
    Several buffer overflow problems were fixed in the pg_to_asci()
    function of postgresql server.
    New packages are available on our FTP servers.

  - frox
    A denial-of-service attack in frox can be trigger remotely.
    The packages are currently tested and will be release as soon as
    possible.

  - sane
    The scanner service sane of SuSE Linux 7.3-8.1 is vulnerable to
    a remote denial-of-service attack. This attack can even be triggered
    if the attackers host is not listed in the saned.conf file.
    The packages are currently tested and will be release as soon as
    possible.

  - ircd
    The Internet Relay Chat daemon is vulnerable to a remote denial-of-
    service attack. The attack can be triggered by irc clients directly
    connected to the daemon.
    The packages are currently tested and will be release as soon as
    possible.

  - fileutils
    A local denial-of-service attack can be triggered by abusing the -w
    option of ls(1). This attack can be turned into a remote denial-of-
    service by using network services, like wuftpd, that rely on the
    ls(1) command installed on the system.
    The packages are currently tested and will be release as soon as
    possible.

  - mc
    By using a special combination of links in archive-files it is possible
    to execute arbitrary commands while mc tries to open it in its VFS.
    The packages are currently tested and will be release as soon as
    possible.

  - apache1/2
    The widely used HTTP server apache has several security vulnerabilities:
      - locally exploitable buffer overflow in the regular expression code.
        The attacker must be able to modify .htaccess or httpd.conf.
        (affects: mod_alias and mod_rewrite)
      - under some circumstances mod_cgid will output its data to the
        wrong client (affects: apache2)

3)  standard appendix: authenticity verification, additional information

  - Package authenticity verification:

    SUSE update packages are available on many mirror ftp servers all over
    the world. While this service is being considered valuable and important
    to the free and open source software community, many users wish to be
    sure about the origin of the package and its content before installing
    the package. There are two verification methods that can be used
    independently from each other to prove the authenticity of a downloaded
    file or rpm package:
    1) md5sums as provided in the (cryptographically signed) announcement.
    2) using the internal gpg signatures of the rpm package.

    1) execute the command
        md5sum <name-of-the-file.rpm>
       after you downloaded the file from a SUSE ftp server or its mirrors.
       Then, compare the resulting md5sum with the one that is listed in the
       announcement. Since the announcement containing the checksums is
       cryptographically signed (usually using the key security@suse.de),
       the checksums show proof of the authenticity of the package.
       We disrecommend to subscribe to security lists which cause the
       email message containing the announcement to be modified so that
       the signature does not match after transport through the mailing
       list software.
       Downsides: You must be able to verify the authenticity of the
       announcement in the first place. If RPM packages are being rebuilt
       and a new version of a package is published on the ftp server, all
       md5 sums for the files are useless.

    2) 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, where <file.rpm> is the
       filename of the rpm package that you have downloaded. Of course,
       package authenticity verification can only target an un-installed rpm
       package file.
       Prerequisites:
        a) gpg is installed
        b) The package is signed using a certain key. The public part of this
           key must be installed by the gpg program in the directory
           ~/.gnupg/ under the user's home directory who performs the
           signature verification (usually root). You can import the key
           that is used by SUSE in rpm packages for SUSE Linux by saving
           this announcement to a file ("announcement.txt") and
           running the command (do "su -" to be root):
            gpg --batch; gpg < announcement.txt | gpg --import
           SUSE Linux distributions version 7.1 and thereafter install the
           key "build@suse.de" upon installation or upgrade, provided that
           the package gpg is installed. The file containing the public key
           is placed at the top-level directory of the first CD (pubring.gpg)
           and at ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/pubring.gpg-build.suse.de .


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

    suse-security@suse.com
        -   general/linux/SUSE security discussion.
            All SUSE security announcements are sent to this list.
            To subscribe, send an email to
                <suse-security-subscribe@suse.com>.

    suse-security-announce@suse.com
        -   SUSE's announce-only mailing list.
            Only SUSE's security announcements are sent to this list.
            To subscribe, send an email to
                <suse-security-announce-subscribe@suse.com>.
