critical: thunderbird/net-snmp security update
An update for thunderbird/net-snmp is now available for NewStart CGSL MAIN 5.04.
NewStart Security has rated this update as having a security impact of critical. A Common Vunlnerability Scoring System(CVSS)base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVElink(s) in the References section.
thunderbird: Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.
net-snmp: SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is a protocol used for network management. The NET-SNMP project includes various SNMP tools: an extensible agent, an SNMP library, tools for requesting or setting information from SNMP agents, tools for generating and handling SNMP traps, a version of the netstat command which uses SNMP, and a Tk/Perl mib browser. This package contains the snmpd and snmptrapd daemons, documentation, etc. You will probably also want to install the net-snmp-utils package, which contains NET-SNMP utilities.
thunderbird: Memory safety bugs were reported in Firefox 58 and Firefox ESR 52.6. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort that some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.7, Firefox ESR < 52.7, and Firefox < 59.(CVE-2018-5125)
thunderbird: A buffer overflow can occur when manipulating the SVG "animatedPathSegList" through script. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.7, Firefox ESR < 52.7, and Firefox < 59.(CVE-2018-5127)
thunderbird: A lack of parameter validation on IPC messages results in a potential out-of-bounds write through malformed IPC messages. This can potentially allow for sandbox escape through memory corruption in the parent process. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.7, Firefox ESR < 52.7, and Firefox < 59.(CVE-2018-5129)
thunderbird: An integer overflow can occur during conversion of text to some Unicode character sets due to an unchecked length parameter. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 52.7 and Thunderbird < 52.7.(CVE-2018-5144)
thunderbird: Memory safety bugs were reported in Firefox ESR 52.6. These bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort that some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 52.7 and Thunderbird < 52.7.(CVE-2018-5145)
thunderbird: An out of bounds write flaw was found in the processing of vorbis audio data. A maliciously crafted file or audio stream could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code.(CVE-2018-5146)
net-snmp: SNMPv3 HMAC verification in (1) Net-SNMP 5.2.x before 184.108.40.206, 5.3.x before 220.127.116.11, and 5.4.x before 18.104.22.168; (2) UCD-SNMP; (3) eCos; (4) Juniper Session and Resource Control (SRC) C-series 1.0.0 through 2.0.0; (5) NetApp (aka Network Appliance) Data ONTAP 7.3RC1 and 7.3RC2; (6) SNMP Research before 16.2; (7) multiple Cisco IOS, CatOS, ACE, and Nexus products; (8) Ingate Firewall 3.1.0 and later and SIParator 3.1.0 and later; (9) HP OpenView SNMP Emanate Master Agent 15.x; and possibly other products relies on the client to specify the HMAC length, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass SNMP authentication via a length value of 1, which only checks the first byte.(CVE-2008-0960)
net-snmp: Buffer overflow in the __snprint_value function in snmp_get in Net-SNMP 5.1.4, 5.2.4, and 5.4.1, as used in SNMP.xs for Perl, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a large OCTETSTRING in an attribute value pair (AVP).(CVE-2008-2292)
net-snmp: Integer overflow in the netsnmp_create_subtree_cache function in agent/snmp_agent.c in net-snmp 5.4 before 22.214.171.124, 5.3 before 126.96.36.199, and 5.2 before 188.8.131.52 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted SNMP GETBULK request, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow, related to the number of responses or repeats.(CVE-2008-4309)
net-snmp: The netsnmp_udp_fmtaddr function (snmplib/snmpUDPDomain.c) in net-snmp 5.0.9 through 184.108.40.206, when using TCP wrappers for client authorization, does not properly parse hosts.allow rules, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions and execute SNMP queries, related to "source/destination IP address confusion."(CVE-2008-6123)
