USN-738-1: GLib vulnerability
Posted on: 03/17/2009 12:40 AM

A new GLib vulnerability update is available for Ubuntu Linux. Here the announcement:

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-738-1 March 16, 2009
glib2.0 vulnerability
CVE-2008-4316
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 7.10
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 7.10:
libglib2.0-0 2.14.1-1ubuntu1.1
libglib2.0-udeb 2.14.1-1ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
libglib2.0-0 2.16.6-0ubuntu1.1
libglib2.0-udeb 2.16.6-0ubuntu1.1

Ubuntu 8.10:
libglib2.0-0 2.18.2-0ubuntu2.1
libglib2.0-udeb 2.18.2-0ubuntu2.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to reboot your computer to effect
the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Diego Petten discovered that the Base64 encoding functions in GLib did not
properly handle large strings. If a user or automated system were tricked
into processing a crafted Base64 string, an attacker could possibly execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program.
