Package : munin
Vulnerability : denial of service
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2013-6048 CVE-2013-6359

Christoph Biedl discovered two denial of service vulnerabilities in
munin, a network-wide graphing framework. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:

CVE-2013-6048

The Munin::Master::Node module of munin does not properly validate
certain data a node sends. A malicious node might exploit this to
drive the munin-html process into an infinite loop with memory
exhaustion on the munin master.

CVE-2013-6359

A malicious node, with a plugin enabled using "multigraph" as a
multigraph service name, can abort data collection for the entire
node the plugin runs on.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.6-4+deb7u2.

For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.18-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.18-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your munin packages.

[DSA 2814-1] varnish security update

Package : varnish
Vulnerability : denial of service
Problem type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CVE-2013-4484
Debian Bug : 728989

A denial of service vulnerability was reported in varnish, a state of
the art, high-performance web accelerator. With some configurations of
varnish a remote attacker could mount a denial of service (child-process
crash and temporary caching outage) via a GET request with trailing
whitespace characters and no URI.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.1.3-8+deb6u1.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.0.2-2+deb7u1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.0.5-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your varnish packages.
