Summary: ESX 3.0.1 and 3.0.0 patches address several security issues. 2. Relevant releases: VMware ESX 3.0.1 without patches ESX-2559638, ESX-1161870, ESX-3416571, ESX-5011126, ESX-7737432, ESX-7780490, ESX-8174018, ESX-8852210, ESX-9617902, ESX-9916286 VMware ESX 3.0.0 without patches ESX-1121906, ESX-131737, ESX-1870154, ESX-392718, ESX-4197945, ESX-4921691, ESX-5752668, ESX-7052426, ESX-3616065 3. Problem description: Problems addressed by these patches: a. texinfo service console update Updated texinfo packages for the service console fix two security vulnerabilities are now available. A buffer overflow in the the program texinfo could allow local user to execute arbitrary code in the service console via a crafted texinfo file. And could allow a local user to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on temporary files. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2005-3011 and CVE-2006-4810 to these issues. ESX 301 Download Patch ESX-2559638 ESX 300 Download Patch ESX-1121906 b. This bundle is a group of patches to resolve two possible security issues. They are as follows: A VMware internal security audit revealed a double free condition. It may be possible for an attacker to influence the operation of the system. In most circumstances, this influence will be limited to denial of service or information leakage, but it is theoretically possible for an attacker to insert arbitrary code into a running program. This code would be executed with the permissions of the vulnerable program. There are no known exploits for this issue. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2007-1270 to this issue. A VMware internal security audit revealed a potential buffer overflow condition. There are no known vulnerabilities, but such vulnerabilities may be used to elevate privileges or to crash the application and thus cause a denial of service. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2007-1271 to this issue. The following patches are contained within this bundle: ESX 301 ESX 300 ------- -------- ESX-1161870 ESX-131737 ESX-3416571 ESX-1870154 ESX-5011126 ESX-392718 ESX-7737432 ESX-4197945 ESX-7780490 ESX-4921691 ESX-8174018 ESX-5752668 ESX-8852210 ESX-7052426 ESX-9617902 ESX-9976400 ESX 301 Download Patch Bundle ESX-6431040 ESX 300 Download Patch Bundle ESX-5754280 c. This patch updates internally used zlib libraries in order to address potential security issues with older versions of this library. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2005-2096, CVE-2005-1849, CVE-2003-0107 to these issues. ESX 301 Download Patch ESX-9916286 ESX 300 Download Patch ESX-3616065 d. binutils service console update NOTE: This vulnerability and update only apply to ESX 3.0.0. A integer overflow in the Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library for the GNU Debugger before version 6.3, binutils, elfutils, and possibly other packages, allows user-assisted attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted object file that specifies a large number of section headers, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-1704 to this issue. ESX 300 Download Patch ESX-55052 4.
