Description Hanno Böck gentoo-dev 2008-06-08 17:46:39 UTC
courier-authlib suffers from an sql injection.

I've just added 0.60.6, archs please stabilize.
Comment 1 Christian Hoffmann (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-08 18:21:48 UTC
Are there any details? I can't find anything at their official changelog, nor any entries at bugtraq/securityfocus.

Fixing whiteboard (brackets) and setting Severity to "major" (B1). Not sure if it is really B1 as SQL injections don't directly lead to arbitrary remote code execution, but I don't know any details, so I'll just shut up. ;)
Comment 2 Yury German 2008-06-09 04:27:14 UTC
Here is the only thing I found, claim is that the code works, although if you are not using mysql for auth then the exploit should not work based on this.

There is some example code available on another page:

With all USE flags disabled, it fails.  No regression.

same on alpha/ia64/sparc, but i think its because with USE="-*" it still tries to run the testsuite for bdb.

net-mail could you please disable said tests?
Comment 10 Christian Faulhammer (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-06-17 20:27:40 UTC
x86 stable, I restricted tests when USE=berkdb is not set...simplest solution
Comment 11 Hanno Böck gentoo-dev 2008-06-18 11:45:52 UTC
> I restricted tests when USE=berkdb is not set...simplest solution

No, bare nonsense. It fails in the compile phase, not in the test phase. Please test such changes before committing them.

Reverting, I'm in contact with flameeyes to resolve the issue.

2008.0 is out, so no need to keep release on the CC list.
Comment 14 Raphael Marichez (Falco) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-08-05 15:28:23 UTC
time to vote. If I understand well, it's a pre-auth sql injection. So i vote Yes.

Yes too, request filed.
