An issue has been found in JasPer 2.0.14. There is a memory leak in jas_malloc.c when called from jpc_unk_getparms in jpc_cs.c.
The destroy_one_secret function in nm-setting-vpn.c in libnm-util in the NetworkManager package 0.8.999-3.git20110526 in Fedora 15 creates a log entry containing a certificate password, which allows local users to obtain sensitive information by reading a log file.
The seunshare_mount function in sandbox/seunshare.c in seunshare in certain Red Hat packages of policycoreutils 2.0.83 and earlier in Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6 and earlier, and Fedora 14 and earlier, mounts a new directory on top of /tmp without assigning root ownership and the sticky bit to this new directory, which allows local users to replace or delete arbitrary /tmp files, and consequently cause a denial of service or possibly gain privileges, by running a setuid application that relies on /tmp, as demonstrated by the ksu application.
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.
A certain Fedora patch for the utrace subsystem in the Linux kernel before 126.96.36.199-28 on Fedora 8, and before 188.8.131.52-45 on Fedora 9, allows local users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and system crash or hang) via a call to the utrace_control function.
rc.sysinit in initscripts before 8.76.3-1 on Fedora 9 and other Linux platforms allows local users to delete arbitrary files via a symlink attack on a file or directory under (1) /var/lock or (2) /var/run.
dbus-daemon in D-Bus before 1.0.3, and 1.1.x before 1.1.20, recognizes send_interface attributes in allow directives in the security policy only for fully qualified method calls, which allows local users to bypass intended access restrictions via a method call with a NULL interface.
The xmlCurrentChar function in libxml2 before 2.6.31 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via XML containing invalid UTF-8 sequences.
Memory leak in a certain Red Hat patch, applied to vsftpd 2.0.5 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 5 and Fedora 6 through 8, and on Foresight Linux and rPath appliances, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a large number of CWD commands, as demonstrated by an attack on a daemon with the deny_file configuration option.
Directory traversal vulnerability in extract.c in star before 1.5a84 allows user-assisted remote attackers to overwrite arbitrary files via certain //.. (slash slash dot dot) sequences in directory symlinks in a TAR archive.
