Trustix Secure Linux Security Advisory #2004-0055

Package name:      libxml2, postgresql
Summary:           multiple security issues
Date:              2004-10-29
Affected versions: Trustix Secure Linux 2.0
                   Trustix Secure Linux 2.1
                   Trustix Operating System - Enterprise Server 2

- --------------------------------------------------------------------------
Package description:
  libxml2:
  This library allows to manipulate XML files. It includes support
  to read, modify and write XML and HTML files.

  postgresql:
  PostgreSQL is an advanced Object-Relational database management system
  (DBMS) that supports almost all SQL constructs (including
  transactions, subselects and user-defined types and functions).

Problem description:
  libxml2:
  Sean  reported the following issues to
  Bugtraq:

  1)There is a buffer overflow when parsing a URL with ftp information
  in it.  A loop incorrectly copies data from a user supplied buffer
  into a finite stack buffer with no regard for the length being copied.

  2)There is a buffer overflow when parsing a proxy URL with ftp
  information in it. A loop incorrectly copies data from a user supplied
  buffer into a finite stack buffer with no regard for the length being
  copied.

  3)There are multiple buffer overflows in the code that resolves names
  via DNS.  An attacker running a malicious DNS server, or an attacker
  on a LAN spoofing DNS replies could leverage these to execute code on
  the victim's computer.


  postgresql:
  According to the release notice, this update fixes the following possible
  data loss bug:

  Repair possible failure to update hint bits on disk.
  Under rare circumstances this oversight could lead to "could not
  access transaction status" failures, which qualifies it as a
  potential-data-loss bug.


Action:
  We recommend that all systems with this package installed be upgraded.
  Please note that if you do not need the functionality provided by this
  package, you may want to remove it from your system.
