DLA 3188-1: sysstat security update

- -----------------------------------------------------------------------
Debian LTS Advisory DLA-3188-1 Utkarsh Gupta

Package : sysstat
Version : 12.0.3-2+deb10u1
CVE ID : CVE-2019-16167 CVE-2019-19725 CVE-2022-39377
Debian Bug : 939914 946657 1023832

There were a couple of secuity issues found in sysstat, system
performance tools for Linux, which are as follows:


sysstat before 12.1.6 has memory corruption due to an Integer
Overflow in remap_struct() in sa_common.c.


sysstat through 12.2.0 has a double free in check_file_actlst
in sa_common.c.


On 32 bit systems, allocate_structures contains a size_t overflow
in sa_common.c. The allocate_structures function insufficiently
checks bounds before arithmetic multiplication, allowing for an
overflow in the size allocated for the buffer representing system
activities. This issue may lead to Remote Code Execution (RCE).

For Debian 10 buster, these problems have been fixed in version

We recommend that you upgrade your sysstat packages.
