Description Jean-François Brunette (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-14 09:56:28 UTC
Andrew V. Samoilov has noticed that several bugfixes which were applied to the source by upstream developers of mc, the midnight commander, a file browser and manager, were not backported to the current version of mc that Debian ships in their stable release. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project identifies the following vulnerabilities:

    * CAN-2004-1004

      Multiple format string vulnerabilities
    * CAN-2004-1005

      Multiple buffer overflows
    * CAN-2004-1009

      One infinite loop vulnerability
    * CAN-2004-1090

      Denial of service via corrupted section header
    * CAN-2004-1091

      Denial of service via null dereference
    * CAN-2004-1092

      Freeing unallocated memory
    * CAN-2004-1093

      Denial of service via use of already freed memory
    * CAN-2004-1174

      Denial of service via manipulating non-existing file handles
    * CAN-2004-1175

      Unintended program execution via insecure filename quoting
    * CAN-2004-1176

      Denial of service via a buffer underflow

Heinrich please verify and advise.
Comment 2 Thierry Carrez (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-02-02 02:35:24 UTC
lanius: if you think you won't have time for such a large-scale patch, should we mask mc ? Or do you think you can find another maintainer/herd to help you ?
