Severity: Normal
Title: ldns: Arbitrary code execution
Date: January 21, 2014
Bugs: #384249
ID: 201401-25

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Synopsis
========

A heap-based buffer overflow in ldns might allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of Service condition.

Background
==========

ldns is a fast DNS library with the goal to simplify DNS programming
and to allow developers to easily create software conforming to current
RFCs and Internet drafts.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 net-libs/ldns < 1.6.11 >= 1.6.11

Description
===========

ldns contains a heap-based buffer overflow in the
ldns_rr_new_frm_str_internal function.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could execute arbitrary code or cause a Denial of
Service condition with a crafted Resource Record.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All ldns users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=net-libs/ldns-1.6.11"

Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying these packages.

NOTE: This is a legacy GLSA. Updates for all affected architectures are
available since October 11, 2011. It is likely that your system is
already no longer affected by this issue.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Gentoo Linux Security Advisory GLSA 201401-23
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Severity: High
Title: sudo: Privilege escalation
Date: January 21, 2014
Bugs: #459722
ID: 201401-23

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in sudo which could result in
privilege escalation.

Background
==========

sudo allows a system administrator to give users the ability to run
commands as other users. Access to commands may also be granted on a
range to hosts.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 app-admin/sudo < 1.8.6_p7 >= 1.8.6_p7

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in sudo:

* sudo does not correctly validate the controlling terminal on a system
without /proc or when the tty_tickets option is enabled.
* sudo does not properly handle the clock when it is set to the epoch.

Impact
======

A local attacker with sudo privileges could connect to the stdin,
stdout, and stderr of the terminal of a user who has authenticated with
sudo, allowing the attacker to hijack the authorization of the other
user. Additionally, a local or physically proximate attacker could set
the system clock to the epoch, bypassing time restrictions on sudo
authentication.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All sudo users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-admin/sudo-1.8.6_p7"

Severity: Low
Title: Active Record: SQL injection
Date: January 21, 2014
Bugs: #449826
ID: 201401-22

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Synopsis
========

A vulnerability in Active Record could allow a remote attacker to
inject SQL commands.

Background
==========

Active Record is a Ruby gem that allows database entries to be
manipulated as objects.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-ruby/activerecord < 2.3.14-r1 >= 2.3.14-r1

Description
===========

An Active Record method parameter can mistakenly be used as a scope.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could use specially crafted input to execute
arbitrary SQL statements.

Workaround
==========

The vulnerability may be mitigated by converting the input to an
expected value. This is accomplished by changing instances of
'Post.find_by_id(params[:id])' in code using Active Record to
'Post.find_by_id(params[:id].to_s)'

Resolution
==========

All Active Record users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot -v ">=dev-ruby/activerecord-2.3.14-r1"
