1) Solved Security Vulnerabilities

To avoid flooding mailing lists with SUSE Security Announcements for minor
issues, SUSE Security releases weekly summary reports for the low profile
vulnerability fixes. The SUSE Security Summary Reports do not list or
download URLs like the SUSE Security Announcements that are released for
more severe vulnerabilities.

Fixed packages for the following incidents are already available on our FTP
server and via the YaST Online Update.

- OpenOffice_org
Specially crafted ppt files could cause a heap based buffer overflow in
OpenOffice_org Impress. Attackers could exploit that to crash
OpenOffice_org or potentially even execute arbitrary code
(CVE-2010-2935, CVE-2010-2936).

This update also fixes numerous non-security bugs. Please refer to the
package changelog for details.

Affected Products: SLE10-SP3, SLE11, SLE11-SP1, openSUSE 11.1-11.3

- acroread/acroread_ja
Specially crafted PDF documents could crash acroread or lead to execution
of arbitrary code (CVE-2010-2883, CVE-2010-2884, CVE-2010-2887,
CVE-2010-2889, CVE-2010-2890, CVE-2010-3619, CVE-2010-3620, CVE-2010-3621,
CVE-2010-3622, CVE-2010-3623, CVE-2010-3624, CVE-2010-3625, CVE-2010-3626,
CVE-2010-3627, CVE-2010-3628, CVE-2010-3629, CVE-2010-3630, CVE-2010-3631,
CVE-2010-3632, CVE-2010-3656, CVE-2010-3657, CVE-2010-3658).

Affected Products: SLE10-SP3, SLE11, SLE11-SP1, openSUSE 11.1-11.3,
SUSE Moblin 2.0-2.1

- cifs-mount/samba
A buffer overflow in the sid_parse() function of samba could potentially
be exploited by remote attackers to execute arbitrary code

Affected Products: SUSE Moblin 2.0-2.1

- dbus-1-glib
A flaw in dbus-glib was fixed that allowed other local programs to
bypass the 'access' flag on properties. (CVE-2010-1172)

Affected Products: SLE11, SLE11-SP1

- festival
festival_server uses an unsafe LD_LIBRARY_PATH. Local users could exploit
that to execute code as another user if that user runs festival_server.
CVE-2010-3996 has been assigned to this issue.

Affected Products: openSUSE 11.1-11.3

- freetype2
When loading specially crafted font files applications linked against
freetype2 could crash or potentially even execute arbitrary code
(CVE-2010-3311, CVE-2010-3053, CVE-2010-3054).

Affected Products: openSUSE 11.1-11.3, SLE10-SP3, SLE11, SLE11-SP1

- java-1_6_0-sun
Sun Java 1.6.0 was updated to Security Update U22.

Affected Products: SLE11, SLE11-SP1, openSUSE 11.1-11.3

- krb5
remote authenticated clients could crash the kdc (CVE-2010-1322).

Affected Products: openSUSE 11.3

- libHX13/libHX18/libHX22
This update fixes a heap-based buffer overflow in HX_split() of libHX.

Affected Products: SLE11, SLE11-SP1, openSUSE 11.1-11.3

- mipv6d
the mipv6 daemon did not check the origin of netlink messages, therefore
allowing local users to spoof messages (CVE-2010-2522).
remote attackers could cause buffer overflows in mipv6d (CVE-2010-2523).

Affected Products: openSUSE 11.1-11.3, SLE11, SLE11-SP1

- mysql
- local users could delete data files for tables of other users

- authenticated users could gather information for tables they
should not have access to (CVE-2010-1849)

- authenticated users could crash mysqld (CVE-2010-1848)

- authenticated users could potentially execute arbitrary code as
the user running mysqld (CVE-2010-1850)

- authenticated users could crash mysqld (CVE-2010-3677,
CVE-2010-3678, CVE-2010-3681, CVE-2010-3682, CVE-2010-3683)

Affected Products: openSUSE 11.1-11.2, SLE10-SP3, SLE11-SP1

- postgresql
PostgreSQL functions implemented in Perl or TCL shared a global state
even across different user user ids. A user could therefore influence
functions of other users in an unexpected or even malicious way

PostgreSQL was updated to version 8.1.22 which fixes the security issue.

Affected Products: SLE10-SP3

- squid3
A remote trusted client can cause a NULL pointer dereference within
squid to make it crash. (CVE-2010-3072: CVSS v2 Base Score: 5.0)

Affected Products: openSUSE 11.1-11.3

3) Authenticity Verification and Additional Information

- Announcement authenticity verification:

SUSE security announcements are published via mailing lists and on Web
sites. The authenticity and integrity of a SUSE security announcement is
guaranteed by a cryptographic signature in each announcement. All SUSE
security announcements are published with a valid signature.

To verify the signature of the announcement, save it as text into a file
and run the command

gpg --verify

replacing with the name of the file containing the announcement.
The output for a valid signature looks like:

gpg: Signature made using RSA key ID 3D25D3D9
gpg: Good signature from "SuSE Security Team "

where is replaced by the date the document was signed.

If the security team's key is not contained in your key ring, you can
import it from the first installation CD. To import the key, use the

gpg --import gpg-pubkey-3d25d3d9-36e12d04.asc

- Package authenticity verification:

SUSE update packages are available on many mirror FTP servers all over the
world. While this service is considered valuable and important to the free
and open source software community, the authenticity and integrity of a
package needs to be verified to ensure that it has not been tampered with.

The internal RPM package signatures provide an easy way to verify the
authenticity of an RPM package. Use the command

rpm -v --checksig

to verify the signature of the package, replacing with the
filename of the RPM package downloaded. The package is unmodified if it
contains a valid signature from with the key ID 9C800ACA.

This key is automatically imported into the RPM database (on RPMv4-based
distributions) and the gpg key ring of 'root' during installation. You can
also find it on the first installation CD and included at the end of this
