Liebe Kolleginnen und Kollegen,

soeben erreichte uns nachfolgendes SuSE Security Announcement. Wir geben
diese Informationen unveraendert an Sie weiter.

Das Common UNIX Printing System (CUPS) basiert auf dem Internet Printing
Protokoll und stellt einen Druckdienst auf Unix/Linux Plattformen zur
Verfuegung. Das Programm xpdf erlaubt die Darstellung von PDF-Dokumenten
unter X. Die Funktionen von xpdf werden von verschiedenen anderen
Programmen - wie z.B. CUPS - zur Handhabung von PDF-Dokumenten genutzt.

CAN-2004-0888 - Integer Overflow in xpdf

  Durch mehrere Fehler in xpdf und weiteren Programmen zur Bearbeitung
  von PDF Dokumenten (z.B. CUPS) koennen Integer Overflows bei der
  Handhabung von PDF-Dateien ausgeloest werden. Ein Angreifer kann u.U.
  beliebigen Code mit den Rechten von xpdf ausfuehren. Der Angreifer
  muss dazu ein entsprechend manipuliertes Dokument, z.B. per Mail oder
  auf einer Webseite, anbieten.

CAN-2004-0889 - Mehrere Integer Overflows in xpdf 3.0

  Es existieren mehrere Integer Overflows in xpdf 3.0, welche ein
  Angreifer u.U. ausnutzen kann, um beliebigen Code mit den Rechten von
  xpdf auszufuehren. Der Angreifer muss dazu ein entsprechend
  manipuliertes Dokument, z.B. per Mail oder auf einer Webseite,
  anbieten.


Betroffen sind die folgenden Software Pakete und Plattformen:

  Pakete xpdf, gpdf, kdegraphics3-pdf, pdftohtml, cups

in

  SuSE Linux 8.1, 8.2, 9.0, 9.1, 9.2
  SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 8, 9
  SUSE Linux Desktop 1.0

Vom Hersteller werden ueberarbeitete Pakete zur Verfuegung gestellt.

______________________________________________________________________________

1) problem description, brief discussion

    Xpdf is a widely used fast PDF file viewer. Various other PDF viewer
    and PDF conversion tools use xpdf code to accomplish their tasks.
    Chris Evans found several integer overflows and arithmetic errors.
    Additionally Sebastian Krahmer from the SuSE Security-Team found similar
    bugs in xpdf 3.
    These bugs can be exploited by tricking an user to open a malformated PDF
    file. As a result the PDF viewer can be crashed or may be even code can be
    executed.


2) solution/workaround

    Due to the wide usage of xpdf-based code we do not recommend switching to
    another PDF viewer as a workaround.
    You have to install the updates.


3) special instructions and notes

    Please restart all running instances of xpdf, gpdf, kpdf, pdftohtml, cups
    after updating successfully.


4) package location and checksums

    Please download the update package for your distribution and verify its
    integrity by the methods listed in section 3) of this announcement.
    Then, install the package using the command "rpm -Fhv file.rpm" to apply
    the update.
    Our maintenance customers are being notified individually. The packages
    are being offered to install from the maintenance web.

    Cups packages and all 9.2 packages will be available later.

5) pending vulnerabilities in SUSE Distributions and Workarounds:

    - freeradius
      Several bugs that can be abused to remotely crash freeradius have
      been discovered (CAN-2004-0938, CAN-2004-0960, CAN-2004-0961).
      New packages will be available soon.

    - mpg123
      A buffer overflow in mpg123 has been discovered. New packages will
      be available soon.

    - squid
      A bug in the ASN.1 parser of the SNMP module has been fixed which
      would have allowed an attacker to crash squid (CAN-2004-0918).
      Updates will be available soon.

6) standard appendix: authenticity verification, additional information

  - Package authenticity verification:

    SUSE update packages are available on many mirror ftp servers all over
    the world. While this service is being considered valuable and important
    to the free and open source software community, many users wish to be
    sure about the origin of the package and its content before installing
    the package. There are two verification methods that can be used
    independently from each other to prove the authenticity of a downloaded
    file or rpm package:
    1) md5sums as provided in the (cryptographically signed) announcement
