Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA713] DSA-713-1 junkbuster

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-713-1 junkbuster

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Several bugs have been found in junkbuster, a HTTP proxy and filter.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the
following vulnerabilities:
James Ranson discovered that a possible hacker can modify the referrer
setting with a carefully crafted URL by accidentally overwriting a
global variable.
Tavis Ormandy from the Gentoo Security Team discovered several
heap corruptions due to inconsistent use of an internal function
that can crash the daemon or possibly lead to the execution of
arbitrary code.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.2-0.2woody1.
The unstable distribution (sid) doesn't contain the junkbuster package
anymore.
We recommend that you upgrade your junkbuster package.
