The X.Org X wrapper (xserver-wrapper.c) in Debian GNU/Linux and Ubuntu Linux does not properly verify the TTY of a user who is starting X, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions by associating stdin with a file that is misinterpreted as the console TTY.
The Ubuntu clamav-milter.init script in clamav-milter before 0.95.1+dfsg-1ubuntu1.2 in Ubuntu 9.04 sets the ownership of the current working directory to the clamav account, which might allow local users to bypass intended access restrictions via read or write operations involving this directory.
xvfb-run 1.6.1 in Debian GNU/Linux, Ubuntu, Fedora 10, and possibly other operating systems place the magic cookie (MCOOKIE) on the command line, which allows local users to gain privileges by listing the process and its arguments.
system-tools-backends before 2.6.0-1ubuntu1.1 in Ubuntu 8.10, as used by "Users and Groups" in GNOME System Tools, hashes account passwords with 3DES and consequently limits effective password lengths to eight characters, which makes it easier for context-dependent attackers to successfully conduct brute-force password attacks.
Buffer overflow in enscript before 1.6.4 has unknown impact and attack vectors, possibly related to the font escape sequence.
The ssh-vulnkey tool on Ubuntu Linux 7.04, 7.10, and 8.04 LTS does not recognize authorized_keys lines that contain options, which makes it easier for remote attackers to exploit CVE-2008-0166 by guessing a key that was not identified by this tool.
