Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2012-05-10 17:59:00 UTC
From secunia security advisory at $URL:

Some vulnerabilities have been reported in ConnMan, which can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) and compromise a vulnerable system.

1) An error within the "dhcpv6_get_option()" function (gdhcp/client.c) when parsing certain responses can be exploited to trigger an infinite loop and cause a crash by sending specially crafted DHCP packets.

2) An error when parsing netlink messages can be exploited to cause a crash.

3) An error when handling hostnames does not strip or escape shell meta-characters when processing responses from a DHCP server and can be exploited to submit shell commands.

The vulnerabilities are reported in versions prior to 0.85.

Update to version 0.85.

amd64: compiles and runs

can we hide/fix unknown dependencies ?

CVE-2012-2322 (
  Integer overflow in the dhcpv6_get_option function in gdhcp/client.c in
  ConnMan before 0.85 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
  (infinite loop and crash) via an invalid length value in a DHCP packet.

CVE-2012-2321 (
  The loopback plug-in in ConnMan before 0.85 allows remote attackers to
  execute arbitrary commands via shell metacharacters in the (1) host name or
  (2) domain name in a DHCP reply.

CVE-2012-2320 (
  ConnMan before 0.85 does not ensure that netlink messages originate from the
  kernel, which allows remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions
  and cause a denial of service via a crafted netlink message.
