Creation date: 11/12/2008.
Identifiers: BID-32422, CVE-2008-5285, MDVSA-2008:242, RHSA-2009:0313-01, SUSE-SR:2009:001, SVRT-04-08, VIGILANCE-VUL-8324, wnpa-sec-2008-07.

Description of the vulnerability

The Wireshark/Ethereal program captures packets, in order to help administrator solving network problems. Protocols are decoded by dissectors. They have several vulnerabilities.

When a SMTP query contains long data, a denial of service occurs. [severity:1/4; BID-32422, CVE-2008-5285, SVRT-04-08]

An attacker can create an infinite loop in the WLCCP dissector. [severity:1/4]

vulnerability bulletin 8323

Horde IMP, Turba: Cross Site Scripting de test.php

Synthesis of the vulnerability

When the test.php script is installed, an attacker can use it to create a Cross Site Scripting.
Impacted products: Unix (platform) ~ not comprehensive.
Severity: 1/4.
Consequences: client access/rights.
Provenance: document.
Creation date: 10/12/2008.
Identifiers: BID-33367, VIGILANCE-VUL-8323.

Description of the vulnerability

The test.php script is used to check the installation and the configuration of Horde. The documentation recommends to remove it or to change its rights when the server is to be put on production.

This script does not escape several of its parameters with htmlspecialchars(): server, basedn, filter and user.

When the test.php script is not disabled, an attacker can therefore use it to create a Cross Site Scripting.

vulnerability announce 8322

Horde: Cross Site Scripting via style

Synthesis of the vulnerability

An attacker can use the "style" attribute in order to create a Cross Site Scripting if the victim uses Internet Explorer.
Impacted products: Unix (platform) ~ not comprehensive.
Severity: 2/4.
Consequences: client access/rights.
Provenance: document.
Creation date: 10/12/2008.
Identifiers: BID-33367, VIGILANCE-VUL-8322.

Description of the vulnerability

In HTML, the "style" attribute defines the style to apply to the current object. For example:
  <a style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);" ...

Internet Explorer also accepts the following syntax, which is invalid:
  <a "style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0);" ...

However, Horde does not filter this special case.

An attacker can therefore use the "style" attribute in order to create a Cross Site Scripting if the victim uses Internet Explorer.

computer vulnerability alert CVE-2008-4418

HP-UX: denial of service of DCE

Synthesis of the vulnerability

A network attacker can create a denial of service in DCE.
Impacted products: HP-UX.
Severity: 2/4.
Consequences: denial of service on service.
Provenance: intranet client.
Creation date: 10/12/2008.
Identifiers: BID-32754, c01623009, CVE-2008-4418, HPSBUX02393, SSRT080057, VIGILANCE-VUL-8316.

Description of the vulnerability

The OSF DCE (Distributed Computing Environment from OSF/OpenGroup) environment provides various components:
 - DCE Threads
 - RPC (Remote Procedure Call)
 - etc.
Developers can use these basic features to create their programs.

A network attacker can use malicious queries in order to stop following daemons:
 - cdsd : CDS Server
 - dced : DCE Host daemon
 - rpcd : RPC Host daemon
 - secd : DCE Security Server


A network attacker can therefore create a denial of service in DCE.

computer vulnerability CVE-2008-5702

Linux kernel: buffer underflow of IB700

Synthesis of the vulnerability

A local attacker can use the IB700 card in order to create a denial of service or to elevate his privileges.
Impacted products: Debian, Linux, openSUSE, RHEL.
Severity: 2/4.
Consequences: administrator access/rights.
Provenance: user shell.
Creation date: 10/12/2008.
Identifiers: BID-33003, CVE-2008-5702, DSA-1787-1, DSA-1794-1, RHSA-2009:0014-01, SUSE-SA:2009:003, SUSE-SA:2009:010, SUSE-SA:2009:030, VIGILANCE-VUL-8315.

Description of the vulnerability

The drivers/watchdog/ib700wdt.c file implements the support for the WatchDog located on IB700 cards (Full-Size Socket 370 CPU Card).

The ibwdt_set_heartbeat() function does not check a limit condition, which forces an integer to become negative. The kernel thus corrupts the memory located before the storage area.

A local attacker can therefore use the IB700 card in order to create a denial of service or to elevate his privileges.
