USN-841-1: GLib vulnerability
Posted on: 10/05/2009 10:40 PM

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

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-841-1 October 05, 2009
glib2.0 vulnerability
CVE-2009-3289
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10
Ubuntu 9.04

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 8.04 LTS:
libglib2.0-0 2.16.6-0ubuntu1.2

Ubuntu 8.10:
libglib2.0-0 2.18.2-0ubuntu2.2

Ubuntu 9.04:
libglib2.0-0 2.20.1-0ubuntu2.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart your session to effect
the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Arand Nash discovered that applications linked to GLib (e.g. Nautilus)
did not correctly copy symlinks. If a user copied symlinks with GLib,
the symlink target files would become world-writable, allowing local
attackers to gain access to potentially sensitive information.
