Python-GnuPG, Unbound, Firefox-ESR updates for Debian
Posted on: 02/15/2019 09:04 AM

The following updates has been released for Debian GNU/Linux:

Debian GNU/Linux 8 LTS:
DLA 1675-1: python-gnupg security update
DLA 1676-1: unbound security update

Debian GNU/Linux 9:
DSA 4391-1: firefox-esr security update

DLA 1675-1: python-gnupg security update



Package : python-gnupg
Version : 0.3.6-1+deb8u1
CVE ID : CVE-2019-6690

Alexander Kjäll and Stig Palmquist discovered a vulnerability in
python-gnupg, a wrapper around GNU Privacy Guard. It was possible to
inject data through the passphrase property of the gnupg.GPG.encrypt()
and gnupg.GPG.decrypt() functions when symmetric encryption is used.
The supplied passphrase is not validated for newlines, and the library
passes --passphrase-fd=0 to the gpg executable, which expects the
passphrase on the first line of stdin, and the ciphertext to be
decrypted or plaintext to be encrypted on subsequent lines.

By supplying a passphrase containing a newline an attacker can
control/modify the ciphertext/plaintext being decrypted/encrypted.


For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
0.3.6-1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your python-gnupg packages.

DLA 1676-1: unbound security update



Package : unbound
Version : 1.4.22-3+deb8u4
CVE ID : CVE-2017-15105
Debian Bug : 887733

Ralph Dolmans and Karst Koymans found a flaw in the way unbound, a
validating, recursive, caching DNS resolver, validated
wildcard-synthesized NSEC records.

An improperly validated wildcard NSEC record could be used to prove the
non-existence (NXDOMAIN answer) of an existing wildcard record, or trick
unbound into accepting a NODATA proof.

For more information please refer to the upstream advisory at
https://unbound.net/downloads/CVE-2017-15105.txt.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version
1.4.22-3+deb8u4.

We recommend that you upgrade your unbound packages.
